Reading Vision Correction

Alternative to Reading Glasses

Near Vision Inlay

Many people over age 40 need to wear reading glasses to see up close. This is due to the naturally-occurring vision condition of presbyopia where the eye lens becomes less flexible over time, making it increasingly difficult to read without glasses. Even people with 20/20 vision can get presbyopia.

CorrectVision Laser Institute now offers an alternative to reading glasses: a Near Vision Inlay.

How the Near Vision Inlay Works

The Near Vision Inlay is a microscopic inlay that is placed within the first few layers of the cornea (the clear front of the eye) of your non-dominant eye to gently alter the shape of the cornea. By making the corneal shape steeper, the eye can focus up close. With the other eye focused for distance vision, both eyes work together to provide a full range of vision.

The Near Vision Inlay procedure takes approximately 20 minutes:

  • Your non-dominant eye is numbed
  • A femtosecond laser is used to create a corneal flap
  • The inlay is gently placed into the eye
  • The corneal flap is replaced and heals naturally

Most patients can return to work within 24-48 hours after the procedure. Full vision improvement may take several months to one year.

In a clinical trial, 92% of patients were able to see with 20/40 vision or better at near distances 2 years after the procedure.

A wonderful experience. The entire staff is wonderfully professional and friendly. Dr. Bosem was great. Could not be more pleased at how the procedure went and the results.
