In our 40s and 50s, we begin to experience the naturally frustrating effects of blurry near vision and turn to readers for help. This near vision loss is called presbyopia (prez-bee-OH-peeah).
The KAMRA inlay treatment is an eye procedure that restores near vision and frees you from the constant frustrations of reading glasses.
What Is KAMRA?
The KAMRA™ inlay treatment is an eye procedure that restores near vision and frees you from the constant frustrations of reading glasses.
The KAMRA® inlay is intended for placement in the non-dominant eye of patients who are between the ages of 45 and 60 years old, who have not had cataract surgery, who are unable
to focus clearly on near objects or small print, who do not need glasses or contact lenses for clear distance vision and who need reading glasses with +1.00 to +2.50 diopters of power.
How Does the KAMRA® Inlay Work?
The inlay sits in the first few layers of the eye known as the cornea. Smaller and thinner than a contact lens, the inlay is a mini-ring with an opening – or pinhole – in the center. This pinhole allows only focused light to enter your eye. The KAMRA inlay is placed in only one of your eyes, allowing you to see up close, while maintaining your distance vision in both eyes. Your non-KAMRA eye is left untouched. Working together, the eyes allow you to see near to far. This is unlike monovision laser vision correction, which corrects one eye for near and one eye for distance and does not last over time.
