Kamra® Inlay: The Corneal Implant That Can Change Your Life

If you’re over the age of 40, you’ve probably noticed some changes in your vision. Are you having trouble reading labels at the grocery store or pharmacy? How about books, newspapers, magazines, or your computer screen? Unfortunately, vision changes are a normal part of the aging process and something we’ll all face sooner or later.

If you’re having a hard time reading up close, you may have what's known as presbyopia. Presbyopia is a common condition brought on by the natural aging of eyes. Even if you’ve never had vision problems before, you can experience presbyopia. Research suggests that almost two billion people worldwide have this condition.

Sure, you can wear glasses to improve your vision. But not everyone likes wearing glasses. Don't worry, there’s a better alternative. The Kamra® Inlay is a corneal implant that can improve your age-related vision problems.

Thankfully, ophthalmologist Randa Garrana, MD, offers this innovative treatment to her east and west coast patients at Advanced Lasik.

How can the Kamra® Inlay help?

The Kamra® Inlay is a tiny, donut-shaped vision correction device with a pinhole in the middle. Dr. Garrana places it in the corner of one of your eyes. The pinhole goes over the center of your pupil to focus light coming into your eye, similar to a pinhole camera.

Are there risks? 

There are no guarantees with any medical procedure. But, we offer this service to our patients because we’ve seen amazing results. With that said, if you develop blurry vision, double vision, redness, or another eye discomfort after getting the Kamra® Inlay, Dr. Garrana can remove it. It’s not permanent.

Everyone is different and there’s no way to know how your body will react. But this procedure is considered safe and effective.

Considerations

When you come in for a consultation, Dr. Garrana will review your health history and do a thorough eye exam. She’ll let you know if you’re a good candidate for this procedure and how it will benefit you.

If it’s not a good option, we offer many other services that can maintain your eyesight for years to come.

Imagine being able to see without reaching for those reading glasses? With the Kamra® Inlay, you won’t have to struggle to focus on what's in front of you. And you won't have to feel old wearing glasses. You can improve your vision and keep your eyes healthy.
