Presbyopia and Raindrop
Presbyopia is natural and happens to everyone. Some people will need to start treating it earlier than others, and most people over 40 will find themselves seeking solutions for age-related near vision loss. While there are several treatment options for presbyopia, the most common one to start with are reading glasses. Once you incorporate readers into your lifestyle, you soon realize the struggle with the on and off hassle of using them. Having the ability to focus on the details of life is priceless. The hassle and inconvenience of readers is driving many patients to look for a better way to improve their near vision without glasses.
Raindrop Near Vision Inlay improves near and intermediate vision by simply reshaping the front part of the eye. Raindrop is a small transparent disc called an inlay. It’s made of approximately 80% water and from material similar to a soft contact lens. In a quick procedure (very similar to the LASIK approach), Raindrop is designed to help you regain your near vision without the need for reading glasses. Here at Vold Vision, Dr. Vold was chosen to be the first surgeon to bring this new procedure and technology to Arkansas, and Vold remains the only vision center in the state offering the life-changing Raindrop Near Vision Inlay.
"I have been dealing with Glaucoma for the past 25 years. I was put under the care of Dr. Laura Voicu at the Jules Stein Eye Institute at UCLA. She treated me for 18 months and performed Trabeculectomy surgeries on both eyes. Both surgeries were very successful. Dr. Voicuis a very compassionate, knowledgeable, and caring Physician and Surgeon. She is very thorough and carefully explains all aspects of your care. Of the numerous Doctors that have treated my Glaucoma she stands above the rest.Outstanding. I highly recommend Dr. Voicu for the treatment of Glaucoma."- T.D. / Google / Oct 30, 2017

Candidates for Raindrop
One of our highly skilled doctors will determine if you are a candidate for the Raindrop procedure through a series of tests and measurements on your eyes. You may be a candidate if:
• Are between 41-65 years of age
• Wear reading glasses
• Experience blurry vision when reading or focusing on near objects
• Do not need corrective eyewear to see far away
In preparation for your procedure, you will be given prescription eye drops. The procedure only takes about 10 minutes and is performed with a laser similar to LASIK procedures. Recovery is quick, with many patients resuming normal activities the next day, and aftercare includes prescription eye drops and follow up appointments. Patients see an improvement in vision within one week and vision continues to improve for several weeks, with the majority (>87%) of patients achieving 20/25 near vision or better.
At Vold Vision we love to help patients see clearly and throw away their readers forever! The revolutionary Raindrop procedure has helped many men and women lose the addiction for needing their readers. Read what two of our happy patients have to say about Raindrop!
