What are Corneal Inlays?

Although not yet approved by the FDA, corneal inlays represent a new direction in refractive surgery.

How are Corneal Inlays Implanted?

A corneal inlay is a very thin plastic lens that is implanted into the cornea. During the procedure, the following steps are performed in order to provide patients with better, clearer vision.

  1. A femtosecond laser, such as the IntraLase, is used to create a precise corneal pocket.
  2. Once the pocket is created, the inlay is inserted.
  3. The coreal inlay is integrated into the cornea and affords the patient both distance and near vision correction.

Are Corneal Inlays Right for You?

Corneal inlay procedures are now undergoing FDA trials in the U.S. and are not available for wide use. Preliminary results show this to be an exciting new approach to the treatment of presbyopia.

While the promise of this technology is intriguing, as with all new things, we recommend a wait and see approach until more studies have been done on its safety, effectiveness, and longevity.

    I have had dry eyes for a quite sometime and had seen several physicians and got eye drops etc but not until I have seen  Dr. Benjamin I found how serious problem that it was. I had the most thorough and individual attention by Dr. Benjamin. He explained to me my problem and treatment options available. Dr. Benjamin and His staff  are very caring and they spend as much time with you as needed and one feels taken care of. I was given state of the art treatment for my dry eyes and my eyes went from feeling tired , red , scratchy and itchy to brilliantly glowing clear. Office is very serene and staff is attentive, pleasant and smiling. Dr. Benjamin is very down to earth and explains thoroughly that one understands what alis them. I will definitely  keep coming back for all my eye issues.

    I wish I had come to Dr. Benjamin years ago!!!

    I have been hopping around between 3 eye doctors in the last few years complaining of severe eye pain, redness - so bad I haven't been able to wear contacts for a year. Every other doctor made a diagnosis in 2 minutes, prescribed a few things and sent me on my way. Nothing helped and the doctors kept saying my eyes looked fine despite my symptoms. Finally I saw Dr. Benjamin, and he listened to my concerns from top to bottom and did tests the other doctors never did! He made a brand new diagnosis which finally makes sense and fits my symptoms. He spent almost an hour with me which is unbelievable. I am so impressed with this place, even the front desk and other staff were so friendly. I'm so relieved and am looking forward to making a recovery with Dr. Benjamin and eventually getting LASIK.
