Reading Glasses Are Not A Red Carpet Accessory

The infamous envelope mix-up incident of the 2017 Academy Awards is a great reminder that while reading glasses are a necessity after we reach our 40s and 50s, no one wants to include them among evening wear accessories. We all cringed when we realized Faye Dunaway’s mistake, maybe she and Warren Beatty just couldn’t see the small print at the bottom that said Best Actress not Best Picture.


And it wasn’t just the Oscars®. Remember that time Denzel Washington forgot his readers while presenting at the 2016 Golden Globes®?



Or what about when Paula Abdul discovered she needed hers on an episode of America’s Got Talent?



When it comes to reading glasses, celebrities are just like the rest of us. No one wants to lug around a pair of readers.


After a certain age, we all find ourselves in situations where the importance of clear near vision becomes, well, crystal clear. It might be a big meeting at work or simply trying to read a nutrition label in the grocery store. As our near vision gets blurrier, our dependence on reading glasses or contact lenses intensifies.


The loss of near vision as we age is called presbyopia. It’s perfectly natural and happens to almost everyone. And all of us – celebrities included – quickly discover how frustrating dependence on reading glasses can be.


But whether you’re heading to the office or to the Red Carpet, there is now a solution for reclaiming your lost near vision. It’s called the KAMRA® inlay.


Smaller and thinner than a contact lens, the KAMRA inlay is a mini-ring with an opening – or pinhole – in the center. The pinhole allows only focused light to enter your eye, providing a natural range of vision – from near to far. It offers long-term performance so that you can continue to enjoy clear near vision over time, even as presbyopia progresses.
