Reading Vision Correction
Around or after the age of 40, it’s common for your vision to shift and to lose your ability to see objects or text up close. This is called Presbyopia and what’s happening is your natural lens is becoming more rigid, and losing the ability to flex back and forth. That flexing motion provides us with an accommodating field of vision, jumping from distance to near and back to distance vision again. Around 40, many will lose this functionality and have to start wearing reading glasses for near vision tasks, such as reading a restaurant menu, knitting or reading a book.
The KAMRA Corneal Inlay is a vision correction procedure that helps patients regain his/her near vision again without having to sacrifice distance vision. The inlay is a tiny lens that is placed in front of the pupil within the cornea in the non-dominant eye. Both eyes will work together to see objects in the distance, while the inlay eye will offer improved near vision. This leaves the natural lens intact and creates an expanded range of vision, offering clearer near vision while maintaining distance vision. The procedure takes less than 15 minutes and no stitches are needed following the surgery.
