The KAMRA Procedure

How does the KAMRA® Inlay restore near vision?

The KAMRA® Inlay sits in the first few layers of the eye known as the cornea. Smaller and thinner than a contact lens, the inlay is specially designed to focus the light coming into your eye. Since this focal point can be very small, the inlay doesn’t affect they eye’s ability to focus at other distances. This restores near vision while maintaining your distance vision.

The Ophthalmologist uses a laser to make a small pocket in the upper layers of the cornea, using a cool beam of light. The KAMRA® Inlay is then placed precisely into the incision, which is designed to close without the need for sutures. The procedure only takes a few minutes.

The KAMRA® Inlay is only needed in one eye. Your brain compensates by adjusting to make your vision work for both eyes.

After you have the KAMRA® procedure, noticeable improvement in your near vision can be as soon as the first week, but may take up to a month. Your vision may fluctuate as your eye heals, but you can resume most normal activities the next day after the procedure.  Once you eye heals, you enjoy the freedom of not having to worry about having reading glasses wherever you go.

The KAMRA® Inay is designed to help you maintain your near vision, even as your eye continues to change with age.
