If you’re 40 or over, you know the routine: To read something, you have to hold it farther away than normal, or reach for reading glasses. This is caused by presbyopia, a condition that is almost universal as we get older. The lens in the eye loses its ability to adjust as we age, resulting in loss of near vision.
Most people adapt to this by using reading glasses or getting bifocals if they wear glasses every day. But now there’s a procedure created specifically to address presbyopia—and reduce or eliminate the hassle of dealing with reading glasses.
It’s called the KAMRA® Inlay. Your Ophthalmologist first uses advanced eye-scanning technology to determine if you’re a candidate for the procedure and how it could improve your vision. If you are a candidate, your Ophthalmologist then can perform a laser procedure where a special lens is inserted into your eye. (You have the option of having the lens removed later).
The KAMRA® Inlay treatment is an eye procedure that restores near vision and frees you from the constant frustrations of reading glasses. It is ideal for active people looking to no longer depend on reading glasses or contact lenses for their everyday activities. The KAMRA® Inlay:
The KAMRA® Inlay is ideal for active people who also need to see close objects, or people whose professions require close work where glasses aren’t always practical. It is important to understand there may be times when additional magnification is needed for small print, to see in dim light, or to perform a near task for an extended period of time.
