Kamra Inlay is a surgical method developed for Presbyopia patients who want to have a clear vision comfort in near, far and middle distance. The outermost layer of the eye, also called as cornea, is achieved by placing a micro-implant compatible with the eye’s structure without removing the patient’s natural lens.
