What do you think of Kamra to treat presbyopia?
APR 11, 2016
Kamra is the only corneal inlay FDA-approved for treating presbyopia in the U.S. A laser is used to make a pocket in the cornea and the inlay is inserted under local anesthesia (painkiller). Reading vision is usually good but some distance vision is lost in the treated eye (the non-dominant eye). Also a small percentage of patients develop a reaction to the inlay and it must be removed.
There are other inlays being tested and the Raindrop inlay is before the FDA panel currently. It may be smart to wait a year or two until some of the other inlays are available so you have a choice for your eyes.
