Are you ready to start liv­ing with­out a depen­den­cy on read­ing glass­es? If so, KAMRA Inlay might be the right pro­ce­dure for you. The KAMRA eye surgery is ide­al for patients who suf­fer from blur­ry near vision and who no longer want to use read­ing glass­es, read­ers or con­tact lens­es.

Kam­ra eye pro­ce­dure is a cor­rec­tive pro­ce­dure aimed at improv­ing the effects of dimin­ish­ing near vision which occurs dur­ing the eye’s nat­ur­al aging process, or pres­by­opia, by insert­ing a small inlay in the first few lay­ers of one cornea.

The inlay is placed in only one eye, usu­al­ly the non-dom­i­nant eye, so that patients can see both at a dis­tance and close up. The inlay is small­er and thin­ner than a con­tact lens, 3.8 mm in diam­e­ter and 6 microns thick.

The KAMRA inlay has an opaque out­er ring and a tiny cen­tral open­ing. This open­ing is posi­tioned direct­ly in front of the pupil of the eye when implant­ed in the cornea.This open­ing makes sure that only focused light enters the eye, cre­at­ing a pin­hole cam­era effect which expands the range of clear vision and brings near objects into sharp­er focus while main­tain­ing clear dis­tance vision.

The KAMRA eye surgery pro­ce­dure usu­al­ly lasts for 10–15 min­utes. No stitch­es are need­ed fol­low­ing the pro­ce­dure and heal­ing time will vary from per­son to per­son. How­ev­er, most patients are able to go back to work with­in a day or two of the pro­ce­dure and can expect to see well up close and at dis­tance with­in one to three weeks.
