San Antonio One of Three U.S. Cities Introducing Breakthrough Procedure to Correct Reading Vision

Published on August 23, 2016

San Antonio, TX – August 16, 2016San Antonio is recognized nationwide for its growth and innovation in the industrial and technology sectors. Now, advancements in the field of vision correction have placed our city in national headlines once again.

San Antonio ophthalmology center Parkhurst NuVision, founded by Greg Parkhurst, MD, FACS, has been selected as one of only three clinics in the United States to launch an innovative procedure for reading vision.

This new technology – called the Raindrop Inlay – is designed to help people frustrated with age-related presbyopia, commonly known as ‘over-40 vision,’ by reducing or eliminating the need for reading glasses.

Dr. Parkhurst will perform the first post FDA-approved Raindrop procedures on August 30. “We have many patients who have waited months for the Raindrop,” said Dr. Parkhurst. “They’re almost as excited as I am to have this new option for their reading vision needs.”

Two other U.S. surgical groups have been invited to participate in the Raindrop procedure launch on August 30 – Chu Vision Institute in Minneapolis, MN, and Slade & Baker Vision Center in Houston, TX.

While the procedure is just now becoming available to the general public, Dr. Parkhurst was instrumental in the development of the technology. He and his research team have worked closely with the FDA on clinical trials during the six-year approval process. Dr. Parkhurst also traveled internationally to contribute to the Research and Development of the design and surgical methods surrounding the Raindrop Inlay.

Myra Martinez, 46, underwent the Raindrop procedure as part of the FDA clinical study more than a year ago. “The next day, I went to work and I could focus,” she said. “I could see the small print with both eyes. I didn’t need my readers anymore.”
