Practice Management Considerations for the KAMRA™ Corneal Inlay
“The KAMRA is a corneal inlay device from AcuFocus Inc. designed to correct near vision loss in presbyopic patients. It is an opaque, doughnut-shaped polyvinylidene fluoride ring, 3.8 mm in diameter with a 1.6 mm central opening, that is intended to be placed in the cornea of one eye. The FDA notes KAMRA is for patients aged 45 to 60 who need adds from 1.00 to 2.50 D. This allows for close-up focus in that eye, while retaining distance vision in both eyes, which reduces dependency on reading glasses.”
