The tiny eye implant providing an alternative to reading glasses for patients with presbyopia.
Receiving significant media coverage following a poster presentation at the annual meeting for the American Academy of Opthalmogy, the revolutionary Kamra™ Inlay treatment has been propelled into the media spotlight this week.
Kamra™ has been available at LaserVision since 2012 and provides a trusted vision correction option for the 23 million sufferers of presbyopia in Britain. In a procedure which lasts less than 15 minutes, the flexible lens which is surgically implanted into the eye, can provide a long lasting solution and help restore everyday near vision and reduce the need for reading glasses.
What is Kamra™ vision?
The Kamra™ Inlay is a mini ring with an opening in the centre, it works by blocking the amount of peripheral light that enters the eye and so focusing the wearers vision, therefore restoring near/ intermediate eyesight. The Independent reports that research has shown the procedure gave better 6/12 vision or better and after the treatment patients were able to read a newspaper without the need for reading glasses. This advanced procedure boasts the benefit of being reversible as the inlays can be removed as easily as they are put in. Providing natural light without compromise, much smaller than a contact lens and lighter than a grain of salt, it’s no wonder why the treatment is becoming more and more sought after in the UK.

– Restores everyday near vision
– Provides natural vision
– A procedure which lasts less than 15 minutes
