What are the Benefits of KAMRA – LASIK for Reading?
1. Near Vision: The KAMRA inlay will restore good near vision and so allow you to read once again without glasses.
2. Distance Vision: The KAMRA inlay can achieve this excellent near vision while simultaneously maintaining good distance vision in this eye, typically 20/20 vision.
3. Intermediate Vision: The optical properties of the inlay also mean that intermediate vision, between 2 and 8 feet away, also remains good. This is unlike previous treatments for presbyopia, such as monovision (one eye corrected for near and the other for far), with a dip in the intermediate range where objects are not seen clearly.
4. Lifespan: The same inlay will work for a 45-year-old and a 70-year-old, even though the latter has much worse new vision than the younger patient. This means a long predicted lifespan of the benefits you will get from your KAMRA inlay, no matter what your age. Clinical trials have shown no deterioration whatsoever in reading ability over several years in eyes with the KAMRA inlay, whereas eyes without the inlay show a measurable decline in near vision over the same period.
