So, you’ve reached “that age” and have been diagnosed with presbyopia (loss of near vision). You may believe that the only option to being able to read, work on the computer, or perform routine daily activities is to invest heavily in reading glasses and strategically place them around your home and workplace. Fear not! KAMRA in Orlando might be the better solution to your vision issue.
The KAMRA inlay helps to provide a normal range of vision without blurry zones from up close to farther away. Doc Brock of Magruder Laser Vision has compiled a few of the most frequently asked questions about KAMRA Inlay to help you learn more about this amazing option for treating presbyopia.
What is the KAMRA inlay?
The KAMRA inlay is a corneal inlay, which is extremely thin and smaller in diameter than a contact lens. The center of the inlay has an opening which is placed in front of the pupil’s center. It works much the same as a pinhole camera does. The natural range of vision is increased, which results in closer objects appearing closer and in focus. As alluded to above, the inlay is placed in the non-dominant eye which allows for the distance vision in the dominant eye to remain intact thus striking a perfect balance between near and far vision.
After the procedure will I feel the inlay in my eye?
No. The KAMRA inlay is inserted into a miniscule pocket below the area at which the cornea feels sensation.
Is the KAMRA inlay visible to others?
Not as a rule. The inlay can only be detected if someone happens to be exceedingly close and looking at your eyes from an angle and if they are really looking for it.
Is the KAMRA inlay considered a mono-vision corrective procedure?
Kamra inlays work differently than monovision. The inlay improves nearsightedness and intermediate vision without affecting your ability to see things far away.
Is the KAMRA inlay like a contact lens and does it require a new prescription periodically?
No. The inlay doesn’t contain a prescription lens with corrective measurements. It works by increasing your depth of focus and, typically, requires no adjustment. If your vision remains stable, the inlay has been shown to improve vision in excess of five years.
Will the KAMRA inlay need to be removed if I develop cataracts?
No. Cataracts will not impact the way in which the KAMRA inlay functions. If determined ready for removal, normal cataract procedures may be used to remove them without impeding the function of the KAMRA inlay.
Is the KAMRA inlay permanent?
No. The inlay may be removed at any time.
