KAMRA Inlay is a revolutionary vision improvement technology. It is an implanted device, implanted deep into the cornea, and tested as a stable and sustainable implant. Delivering long-lasting results, this solution may be used in combination with other eye surgeries such as LASIK laser eye surgery. This aspect helps doctors resolve combinational eye problems in patients, such as near-sightedness, far-sightedness, astigmatism etc.
This solution is marked as a safe procedure by expert eye specialists at leading eye clinics such as Sugarland Eye & Laser Center in Houston. This is because the procedure is 100% painless, and non-invasive. Also, no need exists for removing corneal tissue.
Some salient points on this technology – verified by FDA
KAMRA inlay is an opaque device. It is ring-shaped, and ideal to be implanted in patients in the age-range 45 to 60 years of age.
As per FDA, those who have not had cataract surgery have optimum results. An eye specialist can provide information if this implant is feasible for those who have had cataract surgery.
Ideally, this solution is to rectify presbyopia, for doctors’ state that they can use this solution in combination with other procedures such as LASIK laser eye surgery and PRK, to resolve combinational problems.
How does the device work as per FDA?
The functioning of the device is simple, and is based on the letting-in of light. When light enters the person’s field of vision or eyes to be specific, it is not let-in. No room exists for peripheral light rays. Instead, only central light rays enter. And they enter through a small opening in the implant. The end result of this is that the person can see near objects with clarity.
How is the device implanted?
Expert eye surgeons at Sugarland Eye & Laser Center create an opening in the cornea. This opening is made using laser technology, which makes the procedure painless. The implant inserts through this very small opening.
How did the FDA approve this solution?
The FDA conducted three clinical trials and subsequently collated results obtained. About 478 participants were involved in the clinical studies. And more than 83% of participants achieved clear near-vision. Their vision improved gradually over a period of a year. FDA states that this device is not ideal for those who had cataract surgery or have dry-eye syndrome. For those willing to evaluate the potential of this solution, can seek recommendation from expert eye specialists.
What makes the KARMA inlay special
Patients experience natural vision despite advancing age. Their near-vision is restored, and existing far-vision is unaltered.
KARMA inlay is a long-term solution, unlike other solutions that may lose efficacy in a few years.
The procedure is non-invasive/minimally invasive as per the requirements of the patient, painless, and the recovery time is just about an hour.
Thanks to venerated eye clinics, such as Sugarland Eye & Laser Center, there is hope for people looking for the expertise and efficiency in delivering this solution.
