CORNEAL INLAY TREATMENT


The corneal inlay (Kamra) treatment is a reliable treatment method preferred by many ophthalmologists, which has been developed to treat age-related near vision problem.

The treatment consists of a micro-implant which is compatible with the eye's structure and placed in the cornea, the eye's outermost layer. It is lighter than a grain of salt and never noticed in the eye. Kamra inlay treatment can only be administered in operating rooms equipped with the IFS technology. IFS is the most advanced version of Intralase Femtosecond Laser.

Course of Treatment

In Kamra Inlay treatment, the operation is performed under topical anesthesia (eye drop) from beginning to end. A clean flap is formed in the cornea by IFS. If the patient is near-sighted, this problem is corrected first by laser treatment. Immediately afterwards, the Kamra implant is placed through the tunnel opened by IFS Laser and the operation ends. No pain is felt during the entire procedure. The treatment is completed in about 10 minutes. Stitches or bandages are not used after treatment. The patient can be discharged after a 15-minute rest following the operation and return to their social life the very next day.

The treatment corrects both near- and far-sightedness.

Unlike other presbyopia treatments, Kamra Inlay treatment doesn't affect near vision negatively and corrects far vision problems in the same operation.
