KAMRA Inlay Procedure Package

Presbyopia is a condition associated with the aging of the eye that usually occurs after age 40. When you become presbyopic, you have no difficulty seeing objects in the distance, but you start having trouble seeing small print clearly. You have to hold your smartphone and other objects and reading material (books, magazines, menus, labels, etc.) farther from your eyes to see them more clearly. You should undergo annual thorough eye exams to maintain your eye health. Presbyopia can be treated with eyeglasses (including reading eyeglasses) or advanced surgical procedure such as KAMRA inlay implantation.

At what Age Does Presbyopia Occur
  • Presbyopia usually occurs around age 40.
Surgical Technique

    KAMRA inlay implantation is the latest surgical treatment for presbyopia, which is performed using a femtosecond laser and an KAMRA corneal inlay. This surgical treatment of presbyopia has been more effective compared to previous procedures. The KAMRA inlay is a safe, proven and lasting solution to correct presbyopia.
    It is an opaque ring with 5 microns thick (one-tenth the thickness of a sheet of paper), much smaller and thinner than a normal contact lens. About 8400 small holes have been created by the laser in the inlay body to facilitate diffusion of aqueous, oxygen and nutrients through the cornea and keep the cornea healthy. The KAMR inlay is comprised of a proven biocompatible material, which is completely compatible with the human body and frequently used in a wide variety of eye and other medical implants.
