    Corneal inlays play increasing role in presbyopia

    As the number of LASIK procedures being performed continues to fall worldwide, correction of presbyopia is receiving increasing attention as being the final frontier and “holy grail” for refractive surgery, said Wayne Crewe-Brown, MD, at Refractive Surgery 2017.

    Current surgical methods for presbyopia correction include corneal refractive surgeries to create either monovision or blended monovision, refractive lens exchange, and corneal inlays.
    While none of these techniques is perfect, corneal inlays have several advantages.

    Looking ahead, allogenic corneal inlays are an exciting development for bringing a better solution, said Dr. Crewe-Brown, consultant ophthalmic surgeon, London.

    “Based on my clinical experience to date, the minimally invasive nature of corneal inlays and of the pending onlays combined with their removability means they will play an ever-increasing role in our practices for the correction of presbyopia,” he said.
