Kamra inlay is touted as the next-generation solution to solve near-vision problems. Sugarland Eye & Laser Center in Houston has expertise in delivering this solution to patients with near-vision, near-sightedness, also named Presbyopia in medical terms. An implant technology, Kamra Inlay can enhance a person’s near, far and intermediate vision. With this implant, they can read, use their personal computers, smartphones, and take less help from glasses when walking or finding directions.
The following is an introduction to this FDA-approved vision improvement technology.
Understanding how Kamra Inlay works
The eye surgeon places a miniscule implant (Kamra Inlay) in the cornea. The implant functions like a camera. The patient realizes more depth when focusing on objects, near and far. Just like how the camera regulates the focal length by modifying the size of the aperture, the Kamra Inlay uses this mechanism in the eyes. When the pupil opening is large, the depth of focus is for near-vision. When the pupil opening is made small, the depth of focus is for far-vision. The implant has an internal opening, which simulates this pupil opening, by letting in the right amount of light, and thus helping the person focus correctly.
Specifically, this technology is an aperture lens. It is located under the corneal surface, just over the pupil’s centre. In essence, Kamra Lens reinstates focal point position onto the retina. This aspect restores a person’s focusing abilities, like before, and like never-before.
Questions and answers
How safe is this procedure?
Being FDA-approved, this procedure is the safest. At a reputable LASIK or laser eye surgery eye clinic, there need not be any element of confusion, doubt or fear in the mind of the patient.
What is the duration of the procedure?
Implant is done one eye at a time in one sitting. The surgery takes close to half-an-hour. Recovery time depends on the patient’s current health conditions. The eye specialist gives an estimate of the recovery time.
Can patients who had LASIK /PRK/cataract surgery get Karma Inlay implants?
Is this surgery painful?
It is mostly painless. To smoothen the process and get an enjoyable experience, get an appointment with Sugarland Eye & Laser Center eye surgeon.
Some more information on the Kamra Inlay
Manufactured and designed by AcuFocus, this solution is also designated with a CE mark, which allows it to be used in the European Economic Area. Primarily designed for people with presbyopia, the implant may make patients independent from reading aids, such as reading glasses. The dimensions of this implant are remarkably small – with a diameter of 3.8 mm, thickness of 6 microns. There is an outer ring and a central opening, the former is opaque, while the latter is positioned over the pupil’s center. The effect of this type of positioning is that of a pin-hole camera. It engages the eye to adjust its focal length, see near objects clearly, and importantly there is no loss of existing vision, which may be long or short-distance.
