Tired of Reading Glasses? The KAMRA Inlay Could Help!

How Does KAMRA Inlay Work

Are you tired of relying on reading glasses when you’re on the computer, reading a book or looking at a restaurant menu? If you’re ready to break free from the hold that those readers have on you, the KAMRA Inlay procedure could be the answer for you.

As we get older, our eyes age with us.  In your mid to late 40s, you might notice that you are struggling to see up-close and that you need reading glasses to help. This is called presbyopia, which just means that your near vision starts to deteriorate as you age. To combat this, the KAMRA Inlay procedure eliminates the need for reading glasses in patients over 40.

How Does It Work?

The KAMRA Inlay is a small ring, which is smaller than a contact lens, with an opening the size of a pinhole in the center. This pinhole allows only focused light to enter the eye, which improves near vision. The KAMRA inlay is placed in only one eye, allowing patients to see up close with one eye while maintaining distance vision in both eyes. The other eye is untouched. Working together, the eyes allow patients to see both near and far.

How Long Is the Recovery?

The recovery time for the KAMRA Inlay is longer than the recovery time for LASIK, and some patients may have slightly blurry vision for up to 3 months until their eyes and brain adjust to the KAMRA device. After the procedure, it’s important to rest and not touch your eyes for up to a week after. It’s also important to use your eyedrops as directed to prevent dryness and irritation.
