About this service
The primary use of current corneal inlays is to improve near vision and reduce the need for reading glasses in older adults who have presbyopia. Presbyopia is the gradual loss of your eyes' ability to focus on nearby objects.
Corneal inlays are tiny lenses or other optical devices inserted into the cornea to reshape the front surface of the eye to improve vision. Some of these devices resemble very small contact lenses.
Less frequently corneal inlays may be referred to as “corneal onlays”.
During the procedure the corneal inlays are implanted within the tissue of the cornea, right in front of your pupil. They are placed under a flap of tissue or in a special pocket created with a laser.
This type of refractive surgery is less invasive than phakic IOL procedures which involve larger implantable lenses that are placed deeper in the eye, in front of or behind the pupil.
You can claim 20% tax relief in relation to medical expenses incurred by you for eye laser treatment on your medical expenses tax return.
