What is the KAMRA inlay treatment?
The KAMRA inlay treatment is an eye procedure that restores near vision and reduces the constant frustrations of reading glasses. By providing a natural range of vision you can see — from near to far. It also offers long-term performance to help you continue to enjoy clear vision over time.
Summary of Important Safety Information (United States): The KAMRA inlay procedure may not eliminate the need for reading glasses. The KAMRA inlay procedure may cause blurred vision, difficulties with contrast sensitivity, problems with night vision, double vision, ghost images, glare, halos, and color disturbances. Your eye may also feel pain, dryness, burning, discomfort and look red. Other risks you may experience include infection, swelling, thinning, or inflammation of the cornea, and changes in your vision. The KAMRA inlay CAN be removed. During the clinical study, after removal of the inlay, vision generally returned to the level the patient had prior to the implantation with the KAMRA inlay. However, this does not guarantee that your vision will return to exactly what it was before surgery or that your eye will not have permanent damage. Non-surgical alternatives to the KAMRA inlay procedure include the use of reading glasses or contact lenses. Before considering the KAMRA inlay procedure you should: 1) Have a complete eye examination and, 2) Talk with your eye surgeon about the alternatives to treatment, potential benefits, complications, risks, and time required for healing.
