ReVision Optics Ceases Operations


LAKE FOREST, Calif.—ReVision Optics, maker of the Raindrop Near Vision Inlay, is going out of business. In an announcement on its website the company said, “We have made great strides to build a market for the surgical correction of presbyopia, but respectful of our best efforts, it is with regret, that we have to close our doors.” According to the statement, the Raindrop Inlay stopped being sold to ophthalmic practices or distributors as of Tuesday, Jan. 30, 2018. As a result, the Raindrop Rebate will not be honored past this date.

ReVision Optics has set up hotline number, (866) 934-6592, to address any questions. The hotline will be staffed through April 30, 2018. Company executives were not available for comment.

The first commercial cases with Raindrop were performed on Aug. 30, 2016, following approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration on June 29, 2016. Approximately 2,500 inlays have been implanted in the U.S. since launch, according to ReVision.
