Find Out How KAMRA Can Work For You

December 30, 2015

If you suffer from near vision loss, read how an innovative new treatment can free you from your glasses

Chances are you know someone who uses reading glasses, and if you’re over the age of 45, there’s a good chance that person is you. Reading glasses are used to treat the naturally occurring near vision loss that happens to many of us as we age. This frustrating, blurry near vision loss is called presbyopia, and until recently was mostly combatted with the use of reading glasses. Reading glasses work well, but the drawback is that you constantly have to carry them around, and many people simply don’t like wearing glasses.

But why does this happen to us as we age? And is there anything we can do about it other than picking up a pair of reading glasses and resigning ourselves to their daily use?

Presbyopia is a natural condition that will eventually happen to everyone. It is caused by the stiffening of the eye’s natural lens. As the lens stiffens, it loses the ability to focus up close, resulting in blurry vision that makes reading and other close vision tasks difficult.

Reading glasses have long been the solution, but now there’s a new treatment—the KAMRA inlay. The KAMRA inlay is smaller and thinner than a contact lens, and sits in the first few layers of the eye, known as the cornea.

Basically, the KAMRA inlay is a mini-ring with an opening in the center. The inlay uses this pinhole effect to focus incoming light and restore near vision, while still maintaining your distance vision. This is a huge step forward for people who suffer from presbyopia and don’t want to be completely dependent on reading glasses.

By turning back the time on your vision, you’ll be able to clearly see text messages, computer screens, and even the time on your watch without needing your reading glasses. The KAMRA inlay provides you with a full range of natural vision—from near to far—without frustrating blurry zones. And best of all, KAMRA is a long-term solution that you don’t need to constantly worry about. You’ll enjoy clear near vision over time—without the constant hassle of reading glasses.

Is KAMRA right for you?

If you’re sick of always keeping track of your reading glasses, and want to look into another option, talk with our doctors about the potential benefits of KAMRA. It’s important to note that KAMRA inlay may not completely eliminate the need for reading glasses in situations with dim light or small print, and the inlay is only available for people who do not need glasses or contact lenses for clear distance vision.
