The First Raindrop™ Procedure Performed in Middle Tennessee for the Treatment of Presbyopia

The First Raindrop™ Procedure Performed in Middle Tennessee for the Treatment of Presbyopia This recently U.S. FDA-approved procedure may enable millions of Americans over 41 years of age to reduce their dependence on reading glasses.

The first Raindrop™ procedure in Middle Tennessee was performed by Dr. Ming Wang, Harvard & MIT (MD, magna cum laude); PhD (laser physics), at Wang Vision 3D Cataract & LASIK Center. This newly U.S. FDA-approved breakthrough eye procedure enables millions of Americans over the age of 41 to reduce their dependence on reading glasses.

“We are very excited that we will once again be the first to introduce a new eye procedure to Middle Tennessee,” said Dr. Wang, who is one of the few eye surgeons in the world today who holds a doctorate degree in laser physics.

Starting at about age 41, all of us begin to experience the age-related loss of near vision. This condition is called presbyopia, or “short arm syndrome.” Though LASIK can improve distance vision, there have been a limited amount of treatment options available for the millions of Americans over age 41 who experience presbyopia.

“We now have a procedure that can help our baby boomer patients to be free of their dependence on reading glasses!” said Dr. Wang.

The Raindrop™ near vision inlay offers an excellent option for the correction of presbyopia, with less of the compromise and inconvenience that are experienced with other treatment options, such as reading glasses and contact lenses. The Raindrop™ near vision inlay is a small, transparent disc made of 80% water, which sits in the first few layers of the eye known as the cornea. Raindrop™ is designed to reduce your need for reading glasses by improving your near and intermediate vision. This procedure is performed on one eye, in a manner similar to LASIK. Patients can return to nearly all normal activities the day after the surgery.

Dr. Ming Wang, Harvard & MIT (MD, magna cum laude); PhD (laser physics) is the first surgeon in Middle Tennessee to implant the Raindrop corneal inlay to treat presbyopia, an age-related loss of near vision. Dr. Wang has recently published his autobiography “From Darkness to Sight”, with all proceeds of the book donated to Wang Foundation for Sight Restoration, a 501c(3) non-profit charity which to date has helped patients from over 40 states in the U.S. and 55 countries with all sight restoration surgeries performed free-of-charge. Dr. Wang recently received the Kiwanis Nashvillian of the Year award.
