Jay’s Story

Jay Silverman is a patient of Dr. Jack Abrams at Abrams Eye Institute. A few months ago, Jay had the KAMRA Inlay surgically inserted into his left eye. Jay is extremely happy with the outcome. He has both near and far vision and can resume his favorite activities.

“I am able to read my books and read my text messages with no difficulty,” says Silverman. “I was unable to do that prior to KAMRA Inlay surgery. I am so grateful to Dr. Abrams.”

Correct Reading Vision With KAMRA Inlay

Here is more information if you are considering KAMRA inlay for correcting your reading vision. The procedure is for patients aged 46-60 who are too busy to fuss with reading glasses. With KAMRA Inlay performed on your non-dominant eye, you’ll enjoy the following benefits:

  • A long-lasting correction of your reading vision
  • Preservation of distant vision
  • Increased vision depth
  • The ability to later undergo LASIK or cataract procedures
  • A completely reversible procedure

The Inlay works by allowing light to transfer from the front to the back of the eye while oxygen flows through the Inlay’s microscopic openings. This provides the ability to focus at near to help give you reading correction.

The KAMRA inlay procedure is not suitable for all patients. A helpful tool to see if you can be helped by KAMRA Inlay can be in a link to its manufacturer’s website that offers candidates the change to take what’s called the Frustration Index. The Frustration Index offers simple tests to show how your ability to read may improve after the procedure.

It is also important to remember that it can take 3 to 6 months to see the full benefit. Please call our office to learn more about the procedure 702-304-9494.
