Kamra™ Inlay for Near Vision Correction & Reading Glasses at The Eye Care & Surgery Center in New Jersey

By Joel Confino, M.D.

About the KAMRA™ Corneal Inlay for Near Vision Correction & Reading Glasses
Presbyopia is a natural part of aging and can make reading and performing close-up work difficult. Most baby boomers seem to want to decrease their dependence on eyeglasses or contacts. The KAMRA™ Inlay may be a near vision correction option for patients who wish to decrease their dependence on reading glasses. Almost every day at The Eye Care & Surgery Center we have discussions with patients about options for near vision correction, including if LASIK is possible, whether multifocal lens implants might be appropriate, and even the option of multifocal contact lenses and progressive eyeglass lenses.

The KAMRA™ Inlay-a corneal inlay-is an opaque, ring-shaped device intended for patients 45 to 60 years old who have not had cataract surgery but are unable to focus clearly on near objects or small print and need reading glasses, but do not need glasses or contacts for clear distance vision. KAMRA™ works by blocking peripheral light rays while allowing central light rays to pass through a small opening in the center of the device, making near objects and small print less blurry.

 

If you or someone you know wishes to learn more about the KAMRA™ Inlay for near vision correction instead of reading glasses at The Eye Care & Surgery Center please call 800-504-1083 to schedule a Free Consultation.
