Dr. Kenneth Farr and Dr. Drew Hunter exclusively offer the advanced procedure, KAMRA®, which treats presbyopia. Presbyopia reduces the ability of the eye to focus on near objects. This condition occurs when the crystalline lens of the eye loses its flexibility, making it difficult to focus on close objects. In the past, presbyopic patients had to rely on reading glasses or mono vision to improve their near vision.
It is estimated that nearly 114 million people in the United States are struggling with this eye condition, which typically occurs in people over 40; reducing the ability of the eye to focus on near objects and causing blurry reading vision.
The KAMRA® Inlay sits in the first few layers of the eye known as the cornea. It is smaller and thinner than a contact lens, the inlay is a mini-ring with an opening in the center. By using this pinhole effect, the inlay focuses light coming into your eye, which restores near vision while maintaining distance vision without blurry zones.
