KamraTM Inlay in Nashville, TN
Are you looking for a solution to reading glasses? The KamraTM inlay is a tiny mini-ring that is placed in your eye during a brief procedure which is designed to help address your natural loss of near vision, which can happen when you are in your 40s, 50s, and 60s. Jeffrey D. Horn, MD, of Vision for Life, offers near vision correction with KamraTM inlay treatments for the residents of Nashville, Brentwood, Franklin and the surrounding communities of Tennessee.
What Is the KamraTM Inlay?
Life can be out of focus when you have to depend on reading glasses to clear up your near vision. If you’re like 114 million other Americans, when you hit your mid-forties, you may have started to realize that it was getting a little harder to read things that are up close, even if you still have perfect distance vision. If you have difficulty reading a text message on your phone, without reaching for your reading glasses or squinting, then the KamraTM corneal inlay, designed to reduce dependence on reading glasses for people 45 and over, may be just right for you. The KamraTM inlay helps you improve blurry and out of focus vision, and it eliminates the frustration of not being able to read type that is too small, in a safe and quick procedure that is FDA approved.
What Are the Benefits of the KamraTM Inlay?
The constant frustrations of annoying reading glasses for those patients with presbyopia, or the natural loss of close-up vision, can be a thing of the past with KamraTM inlays. A first-of-its-kind inlay, KamraTM inlays are smaller and thinner than a contact lens, utilizing a mini-ring with a tiny opening in the center, to create a pinhole effect. Squinting, in fact, creates a somewhat similar effect to looking through a pinhole. Just like when you squint, but with a whole lot more precision, the KamraTM inlay will only allow focused light rays into your eye, and it prevents unfocused rays in your periphery from reaching your retina, thus improving your near vision, and reducing your dependence on glasses or contact lenses.
What As a Candidate for the KamraTM Inlay?
If you have difficulty reading or clearly discerning object that are close at hand, then you may be a candidate for KamraTM inlays. Why does our near vision decline after the age of 45? What happens is that the lens of your eye harden, and as it becomes less and less flexible, focusing on close at hand objects, like a book, a selfie, or a computer screen, becomes extremely difficult, if not impossible. Now there is a permanent solution so you can see clearly close at hand, thanks to KamraTM inlays.
What Can I Expect from the KamraTM Inlay?
The first corneal inlay to gain FDA approval for the use in vision correction, the KamraTM inlay is a quick twenty-minute procedure that gives you a safe and lasting solution to correct presbyopia and to restore your near vision. Your eyes will be numbed with drops, so you will feel no discomfort. Once that is done, then a small pocket is made in the cornea, and the inlay is placed in the pocket. Your eyes will be treated and bandaged, and because of the amazing resiliency of the tissue of the cornea, the area will heal quickly, and most patients experience improvements in visual acuity within the first day or two following their procedure, with optimal results achieved between one and three months postoperatively.
