The KAMRA inlay is ideal for people who want to enjoy life without the constant frustrations of reading glasses. It provides a natural range of vision -- from near to far -- without blurry zones. In addition, it offers long-term performance that delivers clear near vision even as presbyopia progresses.
The Unique KAMRA Inlay Design
The KAMRA inlay is microscopically small and thin. Just 3.8 mm in diameter with a 1.6 mm central opening, it rests comfortably and securely in the cornea. The central aperture enables light to move directly from the front of the eye to the back of the eye, extending the natural range of vision. A total of 8,400 microscopic openings surround the central aperture to allow oxygen and nutrients to flow freely and naturally through the eye.
In the U.S., the KAMRA inlay has been reviewed for safety and effectiveness and is now available.
Getting Started: Scheduling Your Consultation
Are you ready to find out if the KAMRA inlay can restore your blurry vision due to presbyopia? The first essential step is to schedule a consultation. During this first appointment, Drs. Atie and Fimreite will conduct a thorough examination of your eyes and make sure you are a candidate for the procedure. Our doctors will ask you a series of questions about your medical history, general health, lifestyle, and vision goals. Our doctors will use all of this information to recommend treatment options for your specific needs.
In addition, at PAJE Optometric we have a specialized technology, know as the HD Analyzer that assesses the quality of your intraocular lens, and the stability of your tear film, to ensure you are an ideal KAMRA candidate.
Preparing for Your First Appointment
Once our doctors confirms you are a good candidate for the KAMRA inlay, they will explain the procedure and be ready to answer your questions. Use this opportunity to gather all the information you need to make the right decision for you. Several days before your appointment, write down the questions you want answered. Discuss your upcoming appointment with your spouse or other loved ones to see if they have questions as well. Bring the list of questions with you to your appointment. Be ready to take notes as you discuss the options with your doctor and the practice staff.
Examples of questions to consider are:
- What is presbyopia and how is it affecting my vision?
- How does does the KAMRA inlay compare to other solutions for near vision loss?
- What happens during the KAMRA inlay procedure?
- When will I start to receive visual improvements after the KAMRA inlay procedure?
- What are the possible risks, side effects, and compromises with the KAMRA inlay? How do these compare to other treatment options?
- After I receive the KAMRA inlay procedure, will I ever need to wear reading glasses again?

What to Expect:The Procedure
The entire KAMRA inlay procedure will typically take less than 20 minutes. You will be awake and alert from start to finish. Your doctor will ask you to lie on your back and focus on a light above your eye. Remaining still and focusing on this light will help you achieve the best possible results. The doctor will put numbing drops in your eye to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.
The doctor will prepare to place the KAMRA inlay in one of your eyes. The other eye will be left untouched. Following surgery, both of your eyes will work together to provide a full range of vision from near to far. Using a laser, the doctor will create a small pocket in the first few layers of your cornea. You may feel slight pressure on your eye during this part of the procedure. The doctor will then insert the KAMRA inlay into the pocket and center it over your pupil.
