Regain the Ability to Focus Up Close Without Glasses Again
Presbyopia: age-related loss of close-up vision
When we’re young, the lens of the eye is flexible. It’s attached to muscles that make it bulge or flatten to focus on objects at different distances. Once we hit about age 40, though, the lens begins to harden. As the lens loses flexibility, the eye loses the ability to focus on near objects.
This is when we turn to reading glasses—around our necks, in our pockets, in every room of the house. Not only is it inconvenient—it’s a reminder every day that we’re getting older!
Enjoy Life Without Depending on Reading Glasses
The KAMRA inlay helps end blurry near vision and reduce the constant frustrations of reading glasses for those with presbyopia. It provides a natural range of vision — from near to far. It also offers long-term performance to help you continue to enjoy clear near vision over time, even as presbyopia progresses. The KAMRA inlay is ideal for people looking to no longer depend on reading glasses or contact lenses for their everyday activities.
How the KAMRA Inlay Works
The inlay sits in the first few layers of the eye known as the cornea. Smaller and thinner than a contact lens, the inlay is a mini-ring with an opening – or pinhole – in the center. This pinhole allows only focused light to enter your eye. The KAMRA inlay is placed in only one of your eyes, allowing you to see up close while maintaining your distance vision in both eyes. Your non-KAMRA eye is left untouched. Working together, the eyes allow you to see near to far. This is unlike monovision laser vision correction, which corrects one eye for near and one eye for distance and does not last over time.

Presbyopia Quick Facts
• Presbyopia is the loss of clear vision up close due to hardening of the lens of the eye after about age 40. The word “presbyopia” means “old vision”
• Even people who have been nearsighted their whole lives will usually develop presbyopia—thus the need for bifocals.
• Dr. Siepser offers several different procedures to eliminate the need for reading glasses in people over age 40.
• Chances are he has a solution to your cataracts too!
