Abstract Details


To assess the efficacy of a small aperture corneal inlay for the treatment of ametropic, emmetropic, and pseudophakic presbyopes.


FreeVis LASIK Centre, medical faculty Mannheim of Heidelberg university, Mannheim, Germany


The KAMRA inlay (AcuFocus, Irvine, CA) is a 3.8 mm diameter, 5 micron thick, opaque annulus with a 1.6 mm central aperture. The inlay is inserted into the cornea under a femtosecond laser-created, 200 micron flap or lamellar pocket in the non-dominant eye. Ametropic patients underwent concurrent LASIK procedure. Visual acuity results for all groups were analyzed from a global data registry.


A total of 3,454 ametropic patients, 507 emmetropic, and 16 pseudophakic patients were enrolled. Across the three patient groups near visual acuity improved from J9-J10 to J2-J3 between pre-op and 6 months post-op. Mean uncorrected distance visual acuity (VA) remained stable at 20/20 from preop levels through the post-operative follow-up period. Updated results will be presented.


Use of a small aperture inlay with or without simultaneous LASIK correction, successfully improves uncorrected near visual acuity without affecting distance visual acuity for a variety of presbyopic patients.
