Kamra Corneal Inlay

The Kamra corneal inlay is a small device placed under a laser flap or in a laser-created pocket in the cornea in order to help improve near or reading vision in those aged over 45 years of age (best in those over 50 years of age). It works on the principle of a small pupil or aperture used by cameras to give increased depth of focus.

Presbyopic Corneal Inlay

This procedure is suitable in small numbers of patients with healthy eyes but difficulty focusing their vision on close-up objects (presbyopia). After the age of 45 years our natural lens begins to stiffen and continues to do so over the following 20 years. This affects you if you find yourself having to hold a book further away from you to allow clear focus. To assess your suitability you will have scans of your eyes to firstly examine the shape of your eyes and also wavefront scans to look for any other types of optical aberrations which may preclude safe treatment. In the majority of patients opting to have the Kamra inlay implanted most will require LASIK initially to leave them with a suitable refraction to give optimal results. Later on (usually 6-8 weeks later) a small pocket is created under the laser flap using the same laser and the KAMRA implant is then inserted. It is therefore a two-stage procedure. The cost of the procedure will reflect what is required, customised wavefront intralase LASIK costs €1745 per eye and the additional cost of the KAMRA implant and laser pocket creation is €1600 (this is only implanted in the non-dominant eye).
