The Raindrop is:

  • Transparent, so no one will realize there is a Raindrop corneal inlay in your eye
  • Well suited for dim light situations as 99.7% of the light passes through the Raindrop and reaches the back of the eye where the image is processed1
  • Approximately 80% water, Raindrop resembles a tiny water droplet
  • Bioengineered to facilitate the transport of nutrients and fluid to the eye

The Raindrop Procedure

Raindrop is a safe way to improve near vision. The tiny inlay, about the size of a pinhead, can be placed in your non-dominant eye just beneath the surface of your eye in a 10 minute or less procedure. Raindrop gently changes the shape of the cornea, the clear front portion of the eye, making everything that is close up easier to see. Raindrop is intended to be a long-term near vision solution, but for if any reason you need it removed it can be easily done.
