KAMRA® Corneal Inlay Delivers Uncompromised Vision for Patients
A long-term solution for the 114 million Americans
As adults, we make a lot of compromises, choosing sedans instead of sports cars, salads instead of fries, but there is no reason we need to compromise when choosing a solution for presbyopia, or near vision changes. With the KAMRA inlay you can restore your reading vision while maintaining great distance vision by extending your overall depth of focus.
What is the KAMRA inlay?
Presbyopia is a naturally occurring condition that happens to everyone around age 45. As the lens of the eye becomes less flexible with age, focusing up close becomes a challenge and near vision becomes blurry making reading glasses necessary for working on the computer, reading a book or even seeing a text message. The KAMRA inlay design is based on the same concept as smartphone cameras – small aperture optics. The inlay’s mini-ring design has a tiny opening in the center creating a pinhole effect. Working much like a smartphone camera lens, the pinhole allows focused light to enter the eye for clearer reading vision and a more natural range of vision from near to far.
Traditional monovision options correct one eye for distance vision and the other eye for reading vision. While this can be a good solution for some, it isn’t the best solution for everyone. The KAMRA inlay is a long-term solution giving you back your near vision and maintaining your distance vision in both eyes.
The KAMRA Inlay Transformed Terry’s Life
Becoming independent from reading glasses was also the goal for Terry Baker. The Omaha, Nebraska, HVAC technician was struggling to see up close. He needed reading glasses to see the small letters on a circuit board and thermostat wires but would then struggle to keep his glasses clean and from slipping off his face when he was working on equipment repairs and installations in extremely dusty and sweaty conditions. When Terry could no longer stand the hassle of his bifocals, he tried monovision contact lenses. Unfortunately, he also couldn’t tolerate the contacts, especially in his dusty and gritty working conditions.
He found his solution at Kugler Vision in 2015: the KAMRA inlay. “With the KAMRA inlay, I see pretty much like I did when I was 20, and I don’t have the hassles of cleaning my filthy glasses all the time or breaking my glasses on a job site.”
“We’re proud to offer the KAMRA inlay as a solution to patients who need freedom from reading glasses. For Terry, this has been especially important when he’s on the job,” said Dr. Lance Kugler, of Kugler Vision. “With the KAMRA inlay, he isn’t trading his distance or intermediate vision for good reading vision – he has a full range of vision.”
