KAMRA Inlay is an eye procedure that restores and renews near vision. It is perfect for those living an active lifestyle and want to be freed of their dependency on reading glasses or contact lenses. Smaller and thinner than contact lenses, the KAMRA Inlay is shaped like a small ring with a pin sized opening in the center to focus light entering the eye. The focus improves near vision while maintaining distant vision. Dr. McCulloch is one of the first eye surgeons in the Phoenix, AZ area to offer this procedure.
The KAMRA Inlay sits on the cornea of only one of your eyes. In conjunction with your naked eye you will be able to see near to far over time. This 20 minute procedure has parallels to monovision laser correction with greater longevity and stability. – call our office to schedule an appointment.
