The panel reviewed data on 508 patients implanted monocularly with the inlay in the U. This study included 32 naturally emmetropic presbyopic patients, and the corneal inlay was implanted in the non-dominant eye.

“The Vis Ability Implant System uses a scleral approach to treat presbyopia that is fundamentally different from the optical or multifocal approach.
