KAMRA® inlay treatment for near vision loss

As we age, generally beginning in our 40s or 50s, we begin to notice that our near vision starts to change. Objects that used to be clear now appear fuzzy, which can lead to frustration and the use of cheap reading glasses to see things up close. This change in vision is known as presbyopia.

Tower Clock Eye Center now offers a procedure that can improve near vision for those who experience this specific type of vision loss. The KAMRA® inlay treatment helps improve near vision and can reduce your need for reading glasses. The procedure includes the placement of a tiny device into one eye and uses a pinhole effect to enhance close-up vision.

KAMRA inlay treatment:

  • Improves near vision so you can see like you used to – looking at your watch, smart phone or computer is easier without the use of reading glasses.
  • Gives a natural range of sight; you’ll have better sight for nearby objects, with reduced blurriness, without affecting distance vision.
  • Allows you to see clearer for years to come without additional treatments.
Why did my near vision decline with age?

As we age, the eye’s natural lens loses its flexibility and is unable to focus on near objects. Because of this, we’re unable to see computer screens, wristwatches and smart phone screens. Eventually, presbyopia happens to all of us.

How is near vision restored with KAMRA inlay?

The procedure places the KAMRA inlay device in the outer layers of the cornea, the clear front part of the eye. It is both smaller and thinner than a standard contact lens, and is essentially a tiny ring with an eyelet in the center. Using this pinhole effect, the device focuses the light that enters your eye and improves your near vision.

Is KAMRA inlay right for me?

KAMRA inlay is recommended for those who want to be less dependent on their reading glasses, and who meet specific medical criteria. Candidates must know that there will still be times when extra magnification is needed, for example very fine print, dim light situations or to perform tasks near the eye for extended periods. When considering KAMRA inlay, talk to your doctor about all the potential benefits and risks the treatment offers.
