KAMRA® FOR AGE-RELATED FARSIGHTEDNESS
Lose the reading glasses
Fortunately, Sambursky Laser Eye Center provides a solution to patients who are suffering from presbyopia in Greater Binghamton and the surrounding areas. This procedure is called the KAMRA corneal inlay.
About the KAMRA Corneal Inlay
The inlay creates a “pinhole” effect by being placed over the center of the pupil and in the middle layer of the cornea, allowing only focused light to enter the eye. Typically, the inlay is placed in the non-dominant eye, while the other is left untreated. Both eyes, one treated and one not, work together for clear vision at a full range of distance, including near and far. Dr. Sambursky may also recommend combining this procedure with LASIK in your dominant eye, to provide even better results and improved vision over a multitude of distances.
Would I Benefit from the KAMRA Inlay?
You may benefit from the KAMRA Inlay if you:
- Are between the ages of 40 and 60
- Have a difficult time reading a menu or checking a text
- Are frustrated by being dependent on reading glasses
- Have not had laser vision correction or cataract surgery
The best way to determine if KAMRA Inlay is a good option for you is to meet with our team for a consultation. Our dedicated staff will review the benefits of this procedure and answer any questions you may have.
How the KAMRA Inlay is Placed
The KAMRA inlay procedure can be conveniently done in-office and typically takes around 15 minutes or less. The procedure consists of just a few steps. First, the eye that is treated will be numbed with anesthetic drops that prevent any discomfort or pain during the procedure.
KAMRA is a simple out patient procedure requiring no stitches.
