KAMRA Corneal Inlay

 

Adults in their mid-40s begin to experience blurred near vision requiring the use of reading glasses or bifocals. This is caused by the gradual loss of flexibility in the lens of the eye (presbyopia) and is a normal part of the aging process.

Corneal Inlays For Presbyopia

The KAMRA Corneal Inlay is a simple, effective treatment for presbyopia. It is a thin disk smaller than a contact lens. It is implanted in the first few layers of the cornea under a flap, which is created using a femtosecond laser (the same laser used to create the flap in All-Laser LASIK). The implant has a pinhole in the center that allows only focused light into the eye. The inlay is implanted in only the non-dominant eye, restoring near vision, while maintaining distance vision. If distance vision is good in the dominant eye, it is left alone. If distance vision needs some correction in the dominant eye, that can be achieved with LASIK or PRK. As a result, the patient enjoys both near vision and distance vision. The inlay is removable if vision needs change. The KAMRA Corneal Inlay differs from monovision in which one eye is corrected for near vision only, while the other eye is corrected for distance.

Who Is a Candidate for the KAMRA Inlay?

Adults who have come to rely on reading glasses for near vision but who have good distance vision or whose refractive error for distance vision can be treated with LASIK or PRK.

Those who know choose Herschel LASIK and Cataract Institute

Beautiful office. Amazing and caring staff. Getting my surgery done Saturday and the Doctor and the staff helped choose the right option for me and I didn't feel pushed to commit. One of the only few who commits the patient to a dry eye treatment as per my research. Post-surgery I hope to keep my 5 star rating because I have nothing bad to say!

I recently did my LASIK procedure about 1 week ago and was completely blown away from beginning to end with the SERVICE received from the entire staff at Herschel LASIK. The office is beautifully decorated and the staff was always professional, personable, knowledgeable and friendly. I particularly enjoyed the way that everything was explained clearly before, during and after my procedure and questions were always encouraged and answered. My experience was the best encounter to date with a physician. Excellent doctor + excellent support staff +excellent service = excellent experience and a happy customer. Thank you so much Dr. Herschel, Doris and Francesca.

Great service, sometimes a bit of a wait, but I take a full lobby as a sign of a well recommended doctor. Staff is friendly & quick to answerphones & squeeze me in when I got an eye problem. Would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting to get LASIK. Doctor even personally called to check on me the night after my procedure.

I got my LASIK procedure done here. I was apprehensive, mostly because anything to do with my eyes kind of freaked me out.
I went under a free consultation. The nurses/assistants were very nice and they answered any questions I had. Then I met Dr. Herschel and he was very nice and understanding. He explained all that would happen, how everything works, how long recovery will be, everything.
So, I agreed and start the process. I love the fact you always meet with Dr. Herschel at every appointment.
I now have 20/20 vision.
I'd highly recommend going to him for all of your vision needs.

Great surgeon and great staff. Do your research, Dr. Herschel is more than just a LASIK surgeon. He is certified and specializes in all areas of eye surgery so have peace of mind that you are getting one of the best. They use current technology and machines. More so, if your eyes aren’t ready for surgery he has no problem delaying 1-2 weeks until they are 100% good-to-go. He will not risk your health for the sake of money.
