ReVision Optics PresbyLens® Free Study
Is your near vision not quite what it used to be? Does it feel like your arms just aren’t long enough to read a menu or see the numbers on your cell phone? Are you finding yourself more and more dependent on those awkward reading glasses? Well, if you’re frustrated by the loss of near vision, please listen closely. Right now, doctors at Key-Whitman are studying an investigational, outpatient procedure designed to improve your near vision. The procedure takes about 15 minutes, and may help reduce or eliminate the need for reading glasses. If you qualify and choose to join the study, you will receive the procedure and all study-related care at no cost.
We are now screening for the next phase of our ReVision Optics PresbyLens® free study. To be considered for any ReVision Optics PresbyLens® clinical study please apply online. Thank you.

What is Presbyopia?
If you need reading glasses, it may be because you
have presbyopia – a naturally occurring loss of near
vision that affects millions of people everyday. Like
grey hair and wrinkles, presbyopia is considered a
normal part of the aging process. The first symptoms
usually occur between the ages of 40 – 50. However, the
ability to focus on near objects declines throughout life,
and generally levels off near the age of 60.
Presbyopia is believed to be caused by the gradual
loss of elasticity, or flexibility, of the eye’s natural lens.
As the lens loses its flexibility over time, the eye has a
harder time focusing up close.
The onset of presbyopia is noticeable when you need to
hold books, menus, and other fine print items at arm’s
length in order to read them. As a result, people with
presbyopia depend on reading glasses, contac
What is the PresbyLens® Corneal Inlay?
Doctors are now evaluating a 15-minute outpatient procedure designed to improve near vision and
reduce or eliminate the need for reading glasses. The procedure uses the PresbyLens® corneal inlay,
and is currently being offered as part of a new clinical study.
The PresbyLens is a clear circular implant – like a tiny
contact lens – that is implanted just beneath the surface
of the eye. It is 2 millimeters in diameter (the size of a
pinhead) and less than half the thickness of a human
hair. The lens is designed so that it cannot be seen or
felt once in place.
The PresbyLens is made of a water-based material called
a hydrogel, commonly used in soft contact lenses. The lens
works by gently reshaping the curvature of the cornea
(the clear front part of the eye) so that it can more strongly
focus light entering the eye. The PresbyLens is placed
only in one eye, the non-dominant eye, leaving your
other eye untouched. Once in place, the PresbyLens is
designed to improve near vision when focusing up close.
The PresbyLens Procedure
The PresbyLens is implanted just beneath the surface
of the eye during an outpatient procedure. Similar to the
common LASIK procedure, a specialized laser is used to
create a thin, circular flap in the cornea. The flap is lifted
and the PresbyLens is laid in place and allowed to adhere.
Once the lens adheres, the flap is closed and the surgery is
complete. The PresbyLens procedure is typically performed
in less than 15 minutes, with most patients returning to
their normal activities the day after their procedure.
