If you’re over the age of 40, you may have already noticed that as you get older, it becomes harder and harder to see things clearly up close. You may need to squint and distance yourself from your phone trying to read your text messages. You may not be able to see the words on the newspaper as well as you used to. This condition can be very frustrating, but is actually extremely common.
What Happens During the KAMRA Procedure?
The KAMRA inlay is a smooth procedure that only takes about 15-20 minutes. We will provide anesthetic eyedrops, and you may be given a Valium® if needed. Using a laser, Dr. Kelly will create a small opening in your cornea so that the KAMRA inlay can be placed directly in front of the pupil. You may feel some pressure for just a few seconds during this time. The KAMRA inlay will then be precisely positioned within the opening that Dr. Kelly made. Once the inlay has been implanted, it is invisible. You will need to arrange for a ride home from your appointment.
