Who is a Candidate for
KAMRA Corneal Inlays?
Typically in their 40s, patients begin to notice a decrease in their near vision due to the aging of the internal lens of the eye. This natural aging process and loss of function within the lens is known as presbyopia and sets in when you enter stage one of dysfunctional lens syndrome. Symptoms commonly associated with presbyopia include:
- 40+ years of age
- Difficulty reading without reading glasses or bifocals
- Difficulty seeing near objects
- A sudden dependence on reading glasses after years of good vision
The KAMRA Treatment Process
On the day of the procedure, patients can expect to be in our office for 90 minutes.
While the entire procedure takes less than 15 minutes, the laser portion of the treatment is completed in only a few seconds.

Kamra Corneal Inlay
Drops are instilled immediately following KAMRA Corneal Inlays in Kansas City. Our post-operative technicians will then provide instructions regarding type and frequency of eye drops and restrictions for the days and weeks following.
The flap or pocket heals quickly with most patients being able to return to work and normal activities as early as the next day. Typically patients gain several lines of reading vision within their first week and most will experience the full benefit of KAMRA Vision™ by their 1 month, post-operative exam.

Advanced Ocular Analysis
The first and most critical step in determining candidacy for a procedure is to schedule a complimentary Advanced Ocular Analysis, or AOA.
Going above and beyond a traditional LASIK screening, the AOA sets the foundation for exceptional visual outcomes with each patient’s long-term needs in mind.
Examine the health of your eye
When it comes to refractive surgery, a routine eye exam or LASIK screening may ignore details that are critical to your outcomes. For this reason, Durrie Vision developed the AOA. Featuring the most advanced combination of diagnostic testing available today, the AOA uses cutting-edge technologies to provide a three-dimensional visualization and analysis of the entire ocular system.

After your exam, we’ll share with you an in-depth analysis of your eyes, taking all the time necessary to explain what the evaluation revealed. You will leave with a comprehensive report of everything we discussed along with any recommendations for treatment, cost, financing, and recovery time.
