Dr. Mark Whitten was recently interviewed by WTOP’s Kristi King on the subject of the state-of-the-art presbyopia corrective Raindrop Near Vision Inlay procedure.
The Raindrop Near Vision Inlay is a small inlay placed in the cornea—not too dissimilar to how a contact lens is shaped. The Raindrop Inlay causes the arc of the cornea to be altered thus improving your ability to focus on objects up close such as a book or tablet device. This is important, because the cornea is actually responsible for two-thirds of your eyes focusing ability.
Whitten Laser Eye performs this procedure in our state-of-the-art refractive surgery center—located in our Spring Valley office.
Dr. Mark Whitten regards the Raindrop as the “Holy Grail of Refractive Surgery” and the procedure ophthalmologists have been waiting for since LASIK was introduced 25 years ago.
With the introduction of Raindrop in the Washington D.C. Area, Whitten Laser Eye are able to offer the widest array of vision corrective procedures in the D.C. Area.
