Reading Vision Correction

Freedom from reading glasses... now there's a thought! The Kamra Inlay procedure can help restore vision

This procedure is aimed at helping people to read without their reading glasses. Presbyopia is the clinical term for the loss of near vision and it affects most people by their mid to late forties. 

Over time, the eye's natural lens becomes too stiff to focus on objects that are close to the eye, such as newspaper print. Nearby objects may appear blurry. In some patients, the Kamra Inlay procedure may help restore to everyday near vision, giving the freedom to enjoy everyday activities again, without the need to reach for reading glasses. 

What To Expect

The KAMRA Inlay is an opaque circular micro disc with a tiny opening in the center. This tiny opening in the inlay blocks unfocused light and only allows focused light to reach the retina. The focused light rays allow you to see at near, distance and eveything in between. The KAMRA Inlay is implanted under a LASIK flap or can be placed in an intra-corneal pocket created by the laser. The Inlay is only placed in one eye and the procedure is completely reversible for anyone who does not like the result. 

What are the benefits ?

You can expect less dependency on reading glasses and improved clarity when performing everyday activities such as reading newspapers, text messages, the computer screen and other such activities. Suitability for this procedure can be determined during a thorough assessment with an Ophthalmic Surgeon. 

  • I would highly recommend Dr Kathyrn McCreery & her team. They explained everything that I needed to know to make me feel comfortable prior & post laser surgery. The care on the day was fantastic as was the follow up care I have received the days and months after. My advice would be stop thinking about it & do it, you won't regret it, the best decision I have ever made, life changing.

  • From the initial consultation to the post surgery follow up, I was treated professionally and with care and courtesy by Mr. Power and everyone in his team at the Blackrock Clinic. The surgery was a great success and I am delighted that I opted for Mr. Power. I am now aged 57 and had been wearing glasses and contact lenses since I was 16. It’s a pleasure not to have to reach for my glasses first thing each morning. The surgery has made a huge difference to my everyday activities and my…

  • My eyesight improved rapidly to the point where I have dispensed completely with glasses. Apart from some conditions which combine night-time, poor light or poor print on coloured paper, I have no need for any reading aid. It might sound like a simple thing, but to be able to sit down of an evening and read a newspaper in either natural light or ordinary artificial light without the need for glasses is a pure pleasure. As this procedure is only required once in a lifetime I look forward…

  • The 15-minute procedure changed my life entirely for the better. I noticed a significant improvement in the first few days after the operation, and with a few simple exercises, a steady gradual improvement over the following three to four weeks. As those weeks turned into months, I realised my life had been made immeasurably better – more so than I could ever have imagined.

  • I had the Kamra and Laser surgery procedure done earlier this year with Mr Power. It has been one of the best decisions I have ever made, going from numerous glasses (Designer and throw away) in every corner of my house, to no glasses and perfect sight!

  • Many friends and colleagues had undergone laser surgery in the past. Knowing absolutely nothing about it, I always felt they were a little cavalier. As a 40th birthday present to myself I bit the bullet and went for an assessment with Paul O Brien . The professionalism and thoroughness of Paul and his team completely reassured me, quelling any doubts or nervousness I may have had. The surgery itself was utterly painless and over in 10 minutes. The next day, being able to see clearly…

  • Having recently had LASIK laser eye surgery in Blackrock Clinic with Paul O Brien and his team I can safely say it has changed my way of life. I was nervous about getting the procedure but have to say I was always put at ease with the positivity from the team and everything was explained in clear understandable language. I couldn't believe how quick my eyes recovered to 20/20 vision following the surgery and the days of glasses/contact lenses were behind me. I've an interest in many…

  • I recently has a LASEK procedure with Dr Kathyrn McCreery in December 2016 and the whole experience was very positive. I had a speedy appointment booked at short notice, I went in had my procedure which took no longer than 5 minutes per eye and it all felt as easy as if i was going for a dental check up. Instantly after the procedure I could see much clearer. A week passed and I had clearer vision than through my contact lenses, I just thought how simple the procedure was and how much…

  • I underwent phakic lens implant surgery earlier this year. Prior to my initial consultation with Mr O Brien I had been quite apprehensive as I knew relatively little about the procedure. Mr O Brien clearly explained the surgery and patiently addressed all of my concerns. I received the best of care throughout the process from surgery right through to my post operation consultation. The procedure and my recovery went exactly as outlined and the results have been excellent. I would…
