How does the KAMRA inlay restore near vision?

The KAMRA inlay sits within the first few layers of the eye known as the cornea. Smaller and thinner than a contact lens, the inlay is a mini-ring with an opening in the center. By using this pinhole effect, the inlay focuses light coming into the eye. This restores near vision while maintaining your distance vision.

What are the side effects after the KAMRA inlay procedure?

Your eye care provider will thoroughly discuss all of the potential side effects with you before surgery. The most common side effects include dry eye, glare, halos and night vision disturbances. These are the same conditions you would experience with LASIK or PRK. Over time, these conditions are expected to resolve or lessen.
