At Advanced Vision Institute, we’re proud to bring our patients the recently approved KAMRA™ corneal inlay procedure. For patients suffering from presbyopia (loss of up-close vision), this revolutionary procedure can change your life.
As most people age, their ability to see up-close diminishes. That’s why many people over the age of 50 require the use of reading glasses. This is inconvenient and annoying for patients who can otherwise see clearly, as it requires them to continually reach for their glasses, only to remove them when they’re not reading or looking at objects close up.
Kamra Corneal Inlay
The KAMRA™ inlay procedure inserts a 3.8 mm, microscopically thin device into the cornea to deliver clear near vision without the assistance of reading glasses or contacts. Not only does this procedure improve near vision in patients with presbyopia, but it has shown to continue to produce clear vision even as the condition worsens with age.
At Advanced Vision Institute, we’re particularly excited to bring our patients this procedure because our own Dr. Eric Brooker has been so heavily involved with the development of this medical technology. Dr. Brooker served as the director of international clinical training with AcuFocus, the medical device company responsible for developing KAMRA. Dr. Brooker also developed a KAMRA physician’s training program that has since been implemented around the world.
For our patients that suffer from presbyopia, we consider KAMRA a godsend. With a successful KAMRA procedure, you’ll be able to see clearly at a normal range, and you’ll finally be able to ditch those reading glasses and contact lenses. That also means no more squinting, arm-stretching or fumbling for lost glasses. And when you trust Advanced Vision Institute to perform your KAMRA surgery, you’ll be in the hands of one of the nation’s top experts on the procedure.
What Causes Presbyopia?
The eye’s natural lens is normally elastic and flexible. It works like a camera lens to automatically adjust and focus our vision. This lets us automatically switch our gaze from something near to something far away. Over time, the lens in your eye begins to stiffen. It can’t bend into the right shapes to bring close objects into clear focus. To compensate, you end up moving objects further away at just the right distance to focus.
Presbyopia continues to progress over time. For example, someone who is 45 may only notice it when trying to read tiny print in low light. However, someone who is 50 may need to use reading glasses many times throughout the day.
BEFORE: When the natural focusing ability of the eye diminishes, near vision becomes blurry.
How the KAMRA™ Inlay Helps
The KAMRA inlay treatment is an eye procedure that restores near vision and frees you from the frustrations of reading glasses. The KAMRA inlay sits in the first few layers of the eye known as the cornea. Smaller and thinner than a contact lens, the KAMRA inlay is a mini-ring with an opening — or pinhole — in the center. The inlay uses this pinhole to focus light coming into the eye. This restores near vision while maintaining distance vision.
AFTER: With the KAMRA inlay, unfocused light is blocked, making near vision clear
