Abstract Details


To evaluate the efficacy of Kamra intracorneal inlay in surgical correction of presbyopia.


DunyaGoz Hospital Antalya, Refractive Surgery Department


Retrospective case series of patients with Kamra corneal inlay implantation. A 250 micron deep pocket was created using femtosecond laser (iFS 150 Hz), with a 100 micron flap if excimer laser (VisX) to be performed for far correction, or without a flap for emmetropes. The inlay was implanted according to Purkinje image and kappa angle. Main outcomes are UCVA, BCVA, uncorrected near visual acuity, complication rate and patient satisfaction.


Mean age was 50.6±3.6 years, 7 female, 16 female. Mean spherical equivalent of refraction was +1.5±0.8 hyperopes (N:16) and -1.43±1.2 myopes (N:7). Excimer laser correction for distance refraction was performed on 20 eyes (%86.9). Mean follow-up period was 80.6 days. A statisticaly significant increase in UCVA was found after surgery. There was a decrease in BCVA, but not significant (0.057). Uncorrected near visual acuity was J2 in 5 eyes (%21.7) and J1 in 18 eyes (%78.3). All patients were happy with the result, except 2 patients (%8.6) reported problems with halo and glare. No complications were noted.


Kamra intracorneal inlay was found to be effective for correction of presbyopia. Slight decrease in BCVA was noted on implanted eye. Patients should be informed very well before surgery.
