Surgical Reversal Of Presbyopia FDA Monitored Clinical Trials

Principal Investigator 

Barrie Soloway, M.D., F.A.C.S.

Enrollment Status



We are using Refocus (formerly PresbyCorp) Group's Presview implant during these trials, the same implant that Dr. Soloway has successfully used for years on scores of patients treated in the United States during clinical trials and on numerous trips abroad. A complete eye examination at Vista is required to determine your ocular health and to see if you qualify for this study. These trials are sponsored by Refocus Group. Patients selected for this trial will have all medical, surgical and hospital care fees paid for by the sponsor. Next to not needing reading glasses, the best thing is that If you are a candidate for this innovative outpatient surgery, all costs relating to the surgery and its follow-up are paid for by Refocus, the study sponsor.
