Reading Vision Correction
Alternative to Reading Glasses: KAMRA™ Inlay
You Need Reading Glasses Many
people over age 40 need to wear reading glasses to see up close. This is due to
the naturally-occurring vision condition called presbyopia where the eye lens
becomes less flexible over time, making it increasingly difficult to read
without glasses. Even people with 20/20 vision can get presbyopia.
Laser Institute now offers an alternative to reading glasses: the KAMRA™ Inlay.
How the KAMRA Inlay Works
The KAMRA Inlay is an FDA-approved treatment to restore near
vision. The microscopic inlay is placed within the first few layers of the
cornea (the clear front of the eye) of your non-dominant eye. The inlay has a
pinhole opening in the center to control how light enters the eye so improved
close-up vision can be achieved without affecting distance vision.
The procedure takes approximately 20 minutes:
- Your non-dominant eye is numbed
- A femtosecond laser is used to create a corneal flap
- The inlay is gently placed into the eye
- The corneal flap is replaced and heals naturally
