Abstract Details


To evaluate patient satisfaction and reading performance 5 years after KAMRA inlay implantation for surgical treatment for presbyopia.


Levant HOSPITAL, Beirut, Lebanon


An intracorneal inlay was implanted in the non dominant eye of 64 emmetropic presbyopic patients aged between 45 and 60 years’ old with an uncorrected near visual acuity less than 20/40 correctable to at least 20/25, and without additional ocular pathology. Uncorrected near visual acuity (UNVA), uncorrected distance visual acuity (UDVA), reading distance and satisfaction questionnaires were evaluated at 5 years.


Sixty-four patients were enrolled, from November 2011 to June 2012. The mean reading distance decreased from 46.8 cm ± 2.07 (SD) TO 39.0 cm ± 2.6 (SD), the mean reading acuity at best distance UNVA was significantly improved 2.5 lines from 0.467 logMAR ± 0.027 to 0.213 logMAR ± 0.069 and the mean visual acuity UDVA also improved 2.7 lines from 0.325 logMAR ± 0.055 to 0.072 logMAR ± 0.053 after 5 years. 93.75% (60 patients) were very satisfied of the results after 60 months postop. 15.63% (10 patients) underwent cataract surgery during the follow up period and the visual outcome was not affected.


Patients maintain excellent near and far visual acuity and are satisfied with their result with the KAMRA inlay after 5 years.
