What is the KAMRA Inlay & How Does it Work?
The KAMRA inlay helps end blurry near vision and reduces the constant frustrations of reading glasses for those with presbyopia. It provides a natural range of vision from near to far. It also offers long-term performance to help patients continue to enjoy clear vision over time, even as presbyopia progresses. The KAMRA inlay is ideal for people looking to no longer depend on reading glasses or contact lenses for their everyday activities.
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 the eye. The KAMRA inlay is placed in only one eye, allowing patients to see up close while maintaining distance vision in both eyes. The non-KAMRA eye is left untouched. Working together, the eyes allow patients 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.
