LIFE WITHOUT READERS. IMAGINE.
Imagine how much nicer everyday life would be if you didn’t have to constantly search for your reading glasses or feel lost without them. If you could eliminate the need for glasses, simple tasks like reading the news, sending a text message or reading a dinner menu would be faster, easier and more enjoyable. We can make this possible.
The KAMRA inlay helps restore near vision and reduces the constant frustrations of reading glasses. It provides a natural range of vision—from near to far. It also offers long-term performance to help you continue to enjoy clear near vision over time. The KAMRA inlay is ideal for people looking for freedom from reading glasses or contact lenses for their everyday activities.
HOW THE KAMRA INLAY WORKS
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 a small opening in the center. This allows only focused light to enter your eye. A KAMRA inlay has many benefits over monovision laser vision correction, which corrects one eye for near and one eye for distance. 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 and giving you better depth perception. Your non-KAMRA eye is left untouched. Working together, the eyes allow you to see near and far.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING THE PROCEDURE
In the time it takes to watch a sitcom, we can greatly improve your vision. No kidding. The entire KAMRA inlay procedure takes less than 20 minutes, and there is absolutely no need to be put to sleep. Numbing eye-drops ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.
Using a laser, Dr. Rudd will create a small pocket in the first few layers of the cornea in your non-dominant eye. You may feel slight pressure on your eye during this part of the procedure. He will then insert the KAMRA inlay into the pocket and center it over your pupil.
You will not be able to drive immediately following the procedure so please make arrangements beforehand for a ride home. Normal activities like driving usually resume as early as the next day. Please note that you may notice some minor blurriness for a week or two as your eyes adjust to the inlay.
