Abstract Details


To evaluate the efficacy and visual outcomes in patients undergoing either implantation of the KAMRA inlay or monovision LASIK for the treatment of ametropic presbyopia.


Vista Eye Specialist, Selangor, Malaysia


Retrospective evaluation of 72 KAMRA inlay patients and 30 monovision patients. Study visits were at pre-op, Day 1, Week 1, and Months 1, 3, 6, and 12. Inclusion criterias: age 42-55 years, reading ability of N8 (J5) or worse, no previous corneal procedures or problems, and no contra-indication for Lasik.


The mean age of enrolled patients was 46.1 ± 4.3 years. At Month 6, KAMRA patients were statistically significantly more likely to achieve a UCDVA of 20/20 or better than monovision patients; 91.7% versus 50%, respectively, (P=.041). 100% were 20/32 or better in both groups. For UCNVA, 75% achieved uncorrected near acuity of N4 or better with the KAMRA inlay, compared with 66.7% with monovision LASIK. 100% of patients in both groups were able to read at N5.


Implantation of the KAMRA inlay provided better visual results than monovision LASIK. This study is ongoing and longer-term data are being collected. FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE?: No
