Ditch Your Reading Glasses: KAMRA™ Inlay
If you are over age 40, you may feel like the fonts on restaurant menus, text messages and medicine bottles are getting smaller. Unfortunately, it’s probably not the font size…it’s your eyes.
As you grow older, your eyes’ natural lenses start to lose flexibility so they lose the ability to accommodate (or focus) on close-up objects. This is called presbyopia. It’s a natural occurrence that cannot be prevented.
While reading glasses can help you see more clearly, they can be frustrating and even embarrassing for some people. Luckily, Boling Vision Center has an alternative to reading glasses: the KAMRA Inlay.
Boling Vision Center was the first eye care center in Indiana to perform KAMRA Inlay surgery.
KAMRA Inlay Side Effects
Some patient may experience side effects including:
- Dry eye
- Glare or halos
- Night vision disturbances
- Light sensitivity
- Eye watering
- Eye irritations such as pain, burning or redness
The inlay is a permanent vision correction solution; however, it can be removed in the future if necessary. It is important to note that some patients may still require reading glasses after the procedure.
