KAMRA Inlay - Presbyopia Correction


The KAMRA® Inlay As Seen On Good Morning America

We are excited to announce that the KAMRA inlay was featured on Good Morning America today!

 

 

 

Is your near vision changing?

As we age, so do the lenses in our eyes, and we begin to experience the frustrating effects of blurry near vision. Activities such as reading or surfing the internet become uncomfortable and difficult, as our eyes begin to have difficulty adjusting to objects in close range.

As a result, many adults increasingly experience dependency on reading glasses or contact lenses to see up close and comfortably navigate their daily activities.  This natural loss of reading vision is called presbyopia (prez-bee-OH-pee-ah), and it eventually affects us all.

How does Presbyopia occur?

The eyes natural lens is normally elastic and flexible; it works like the lens of a camera in order to adjust and focus our vision, automatically switching our gaze from nearby objects to something far away. Over time these lenses stiffen, making it more difficult to bend correctly and bring close objects into focus. To compensate, individuals end up moving objects further away, using their distance vision in order to try to see them clearly.

Presbyopia continues to progress and worsen over time. Although its initial impacts may be minor, impacting vision in minute ways, over the years individuals experience increased dependency on reading glasses throughout their day in order to see comfortably.

BEFORE: When the natural focusing ability of the eye diminishes, near vision becomes blurry.

Who Can Benefit from KAMRA Vision?

The KAMRA inlay is ideal for individuals over 40 seeking restoration of their near vision who hope to reduce their dependence on glasses or contact lenses. The KAMRA inlay can be performed at the same time as a LASIK procedure. Previous Laser Vision Correction, refractive lens exchange or cataract surgery does not impact eligibility for KAMRA vision correction.

How does the KAMRA inlay help correct Presbyopia?

AFTER: With the KAMRA inlay, unfocused light is blocked, making near vision clear

The KAMRA inlay treatment restores near vision, resulting in freedom from reading glasses and the reduction of visual strain. The KAMRA inlay is a mini-ring with an opening, or pinhole, in the center, which is used to focus light that enters the eye. It is placed in the first layers of the eye (otherwise known as the cornea) where it rests comfortably.

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, this allows you to see near-to-far with ease and near vision is restored without negative impact on the eyes capacity to see at a distance!
