What Are Corneal Inlays?

KAMRA™ Corneal Inlay is a “mini-ring” that is smaller and thinner than an average contact lens. The inlay has a miniscule opening in the center that allows light to focus from the front to the back of the eye. The inlay is only placed inside the non-dominant eye ultimately helping patients improve near vision while retaining distance vision. The eyes work together to see clearly at a complete range of distances.

Raindrop Near Vision Inlay is a tiny clear inlay made of medical grade hydrogel similar to that used for soft contact lenses. The optical characteristics of the inlay are almost identical to the human cornea. The inlay is placed in the patient’s non-dominant eye to improve near vision while also maintaining distance vision. When in position, it changes the curvature of the cornea so the front of the eye acts much like a multifocal contact lens.

Am I A Candidate?

  • Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) involves the replacement of the eye’s natural lens with an advanced lens implant, which can potentially eliminate one’s need for reading glasses and other corrective eyewear options.
  • Monovision, or blended vision, is a technique where the surgeon corrects one eye for distance, and the other eye for near. Monovision can be performed with LASIK, PRK, refractive lens exchange (RLE), or custom cataract surgery.
