Expert eye specialists at the Sugarland Eye & Laser Center in Houston deliver front-running eye solutions. KAMRA inlay is the new-found long-lasting solution that is touted as a revolutionary approach in enhancing near-vision. Visit an eye surgeon to understand if patients who have undergone cataract, LASIK, PRK etc. can benefit from KAMRA inlay.
Restores near-vision like never before
FDA approved, and clinically tested, this solution is safe, non-invasive, and corrects presbyopia. An implanted device, it is smaller than contact lenses. The inlay is extremely light, is opaque with a central opening to let-in light.
Works like a camera
The central opening functions like a camera aperture. By regulating the letting-in of light, the focal length of vision is rectified. Only focused light is let-in. This aspect lets the person see near, far, and intermediate objects with no confusion.
Benefiting people from age 40
This solution benefits those looking for a long-term solution to reduce their dependence on contact lenses or glasses. Wearers have complete freedom doing any sort of activity. They regain confidence, as they are able to see near and far objects with clarity. This means there is no need to squint to read messages on the smartphone, computer screens, newspapers, sign boards, or ask help to check on the restaurant menu!
No negative effect on far vision
Some eye surgeries to enhance or rectify vision may produce trade-off results. Meaning, the patient has to trade-off far vision to get near-vision or vice-versa. But as per expert eye specialists at Sugarland Eye & Laser Center, there is no such thing with KAMRA inlay. A person’s existing far vision is not disturbed.
Implanted in only one eye
Even the eyes have a dominant one, which is responsible for far-vision, and the non-dominant one responsible for near-vision. Therefore, the non-dominant one is chosen to implant this device. The dominant one is left untouched. Together, both eyes function, and eventually adjust to deliver vision at all ranges.
How long is long-lasting?
There is no other long-lasting solution for near-vision problems than KAMRA inlay. Unless the eyes don’t change, with age, or injury, the solution will last a lifetime. The vision is static and won’t degrade over time. But there could be cases that patients may develop cataract. In such cases, corrective surgery can be performed to remove the cataract.
Safety of manufacturing material – FDA approved
Being an implant, the material is biocompatible. Specifically, the material is polyvinylidene fluoride. This is a material that is used in many other implants. Therefore, it is not a ‘new’ material. Rather, it is an existing one that is in wide usage. But the technology is new, and tested!
The inlay is affixed firmly, and does not move. Once implanted, the implant merges with the corneal tissue. There are more than 8000 openings in the device, which ensures that there is enough circulation. All of this makes this solution a commercially viable one.
