What is KAMRA?

As the eye ages, it loses elasticity. This keeps the eye from focusing correctly on your computer or smartphone even though the words on a television screen are easy to read. Generally occurring when we reach the age of 40 or so, presbyopia is frustrating, especially when it is accompanied by reading glasses. If you require reading glasses, you probably spend more time looking for your glasses than actually seeing through them. The Orlando ophthalmology experts at Magruder Laser Vision have a solution for presbyopia – KAMRA.

The KAMRA inlay restores close vision without disturbing far vision. Even better than helping your vision today, KAMRA adjusts to presbyopic changes as they occur.

The KAMRA inlay is ideal for patients aged 45 to 60 who experience sharp distance vision but have recently developed poor close-up vision. Resembling a small, thin contact lens, the KAMRA inlay has an opaque outer ring surrounding a clear central opening. Much like a pinhole camera, images are seen through this tiny opening and brought into sharp focus while objects in the distance remain unaffected. The KAMRA inlay is usually placed in a patient’s non-dominant eye giving the patient a binocular effect for far vision and reliance on the non-dominant eye for clear close vision.

The entire KAMRA inlay procedure lasts less than 15 minutes and is performed on an outpatient basis in the ophthalmologist’s office.
