Introducing Kamra Inlay

Fix Your Dependency on  Reading Glasses – Its Time to Act

What is the Kamra inlay?

The FDA approved Kamra inlay for use in the USA. The Kamra Inlay is an ultra-thin donut shaped lens that is placed into the eye to improve near vision (what you use reading glasses for today). The Kamra inlay is fully compatible with your body, and also protects from UV rays, which causes macular degeneration.

Who can use the Kamra inlay?

Karma Inlay is to help people with presbyopia.It’s common for people between the age of forty-five and sixty years to gradually lose the ability to read and see near. You’ve probably found yourself having to reach for your “readers” or reading glasses in restaurants, or when you are trying to read directions.

Thankfully the Kamra inlay was invented to decrease the need for reading glasses for this age group. After people undergo this procedure, they will notice that their world is more focused and using the near sight will not be difficult. The Kamra inlay helps get correct near vision and lessens the frequent frustrations of reading glasses. Even more, the karma inlay lens is inserted on the cornea and does not have to be inserted everyday like regular contact lenses.

Who can perform the Kamra inlay procedure?

Only board certified ophthalmologists who have been trained and certified in the art and science of Kamra inlay can perform the Kamra inlay procedure. Right now Dr. Rajesh Khanna in Los Angeles is one of only a few opthamologsts are certified to perform the Kamra inlay procedure.

The Kamra inlay convenient solution

The Kamra Inlay is a one time procedure The inlay does not have to be taken out at night. For a person who wears contact lenses, they are used to getting up in the morning to put on their contact lens and take them out at night. With the Kamra inlay there is no similiar morning or night ritual to be followed.

How does the Kamra inlay work?

The Kamra inlay works just like a better version of your natural eye lens, allowing you to see and adjust to both near and distance vision.

The Kamra inlay has a central opening like the aperture of a camera. It causes a pinhole effect to expand depth of field or focus. This pinhole allows only focused light to enter your eye. This allows the eye to see middle and near. The eye does not lose distance vision and it is better than monovision.

How is the procedure done?

A special laser creates a small pocket in the cornea, which is the clear outer part of the eye. The Kamra inlay is then inserted into the pocket and centered over the pupil. The inlay gets placed in the first few layers of the eye known as the cornea. This lens is much smaller and thinner than a contact lens. The inlay is a mini-ring with an opening or pinhole in the center.

The kamra inlay is placed in only one of your eyes. This allows you to see up close, while maintaining your distance vision in both eyes. During the procedure, the dominant eye is left untouched. Working together, the eyes allow you to see near to far more accurately.  Another positive is that no one will be able to see the karma inlay in your eye.

Is the procedure painful?

The doctor numbs up the eye with drops. So even though you may feel a little pressure it is not painful. It is quick, and similar to lasik eye surgery.

Is the Kamra inlay reversible?

Yes, the Kamra inlay is reversible. It can be removed if desired.

Where can I learn more about it?

You can learn more about this procedure from Kamra inlay surgeon Dr. Rajesh Khanna, MD. Dr. Khanna can be contacted via email at or by phone at (310) 482 1240. Dr. Khanna has offices in Beverly Hills, Marina Del Rey, Santa Monica and Thousand Oaks, California.

What is the difference between Kamra Inlay and Monovision Lasik?

Kamra Inlay works on the principle of a camera, utilizing an aperture or pin hole method. It imparts near vision without sacrificing too much of distance vision. Mono vision lasik makes the eye nearsighted. It takes away the distance vision.

Are Kamra Inlay and PIE same?

PIE  is inserted inside the eye. Kamra inlay is implanted in a pocket of the cornea. PIE is a multifocal lens. Kamraa is pin hole based.
