The success of the Kamra Inlay has been tremendous and is even trusted by those that depend on extreme vision acuity for their livelihood. James “CJ” Collier, a professional racecar driver, began losing his near vision as he aged. Being a racecar driver, he needed to continually cycle his vision focus from gauges on the dashboard to the track throughout the race. Having elected to undergo the Kamra Inlay procedure, James knew that he needed to fix his vision if he wanted to continue racing.
Extremely satisfied with the results of the surgery, Collier is now back to doing what he does best, racing. “It was instantaneous. It was really kind of exciting because I was reaching for my glasses and realized I didn’t need them,” Collier said.
As we age, many of us will struggle with our vision as a result of presbyopia (the natural loss of near vision) even if there has been no prior history of vision issues. Presbyopia is caused when the natural lens in our eye, that is elastic and flexible in our 20’s and 30’s, begins to stiffen. This stiffening of the lens makes it difficult for the eye to adjust and focus the vision on objects that are close, so to compensate for this we may find ourselves moving things further away in order to gain focus.
Kamra Inlay received FDA approval as the first legitimate option for patients that suffer from presbyopia. Before the Kamra Inlay was approved, monovision surgery was really the only option to correct for this. The Kamra Inlay is an implantable, reversible procedure that involves placing a small, very thin lens inside the first few layers of the cornea. The pinhole in the lens allows light that comes into the eye to focus properly. This restores the patients’ near vision while maintaining their distance vision as well.
