Abstract Details

Purpose:

To evaluate the effectiveness of a small aperture corneal inlay for the treatment of presbyopia.

Setting:

Multiple clinics throughout the United States.

Methods:

Retrospective evaluation of 238 presbyopes implanted monocularly, in their non-dominant eye, with a KAMRA small aperture corneal inlay (AcuFocus). The mean age for this group was 52.6 +/- 5.0 years and the mean pre-op MRSE was -0.14 D +/- 0.44 (range: +1.25 D to -1.25 D). Monocular and binocular visual acuity was measured at uncorrected near and distance out to six months. Acuity results are reported in logMAR.

Results:

Mean MRSE at 6 months was -0.02 D +/- 0.25. Mean UCNVA in the inlay eye improved 3 lines from 0.48 +/- 0.23 (20/63) at pre-op to 0.21 +/- 0.20 (20/32) at 6 months post-op. Mean monocular and binocular UCDVA at 6 months was 0.12 +/- 0.18 (20/25) and 0.04 +/- 0.08 (20/20), respectively. Both UCDVA scores are essentially unchanged from pre-op.

Conclusions:

Implantation of a KAMRA small aperture corneal inlay improves near visual acuity and maintains distance visual acuity for patients with presbyopia.
