Abstract Details


To investigate the visual outcomes and safety of the intracorneal lens FlexivueTM Micro-Lens (Presbia, CA, The Netherlands) for presbyopia, implanted using femtosecond laser (Intralase, AMO, Irvine, CA).


Department of Ophthalmology, Vardinoyannion Eye Institute of Crete, Crete, Greece.


The lens was implanted inside a corneal pocket created in the non-dominant eye of 45 emmetropic, presbyopic patients using femtosecond laser.


Mean uncorrected visual acuity for near increased from 20/100 to 20/25 and for distance decreased from 20/20 to 20/40 in the operated eye, whereas it remained stable binocularly. After surgery, 92% referred no use of reading glasses. No intra/post-operative complications were found.


Intracorneal lenses for presbyopia are a safe, effective and reversible method to correct presbyopia in emmetropic patients aged 45 to 60 years old.
