Do what you love with vision that’s clearer than ever before.
The KAMRA inlay helps restore near vision and reduce the constant frustrations of reading glasses for those with presbyopia or blurry near vision. By providing a natural range of vision you can see — from near to far. It also offers long-term performance to help you continue to enjoy clear vision over time, even as presbyopia progresses. So you can focus on enjoying the moment — and not worrying about your glasses.
A Complete Solution for Presbyopia
As we age into our 40’s and 50’s, our near vision starts to get blurry. While reading glasses or contact lenses can help, neither is ideal. However, by inserting a KAMRA inlay in the cornea, patients can regain their near vision and remove the need for reading glasses without sacrificing distance vision the way contact lenses do. In other words, it’s the most complete solution for presbyopia available, and the one that makes the most sense.

Am I a candidate?
Few Centers in the United States take such an in-depth, detailed approach to ocular imaging and assessment you'll experience on the day of your evaluation.
None of these studies are painful. In fact, they are like cameras, each designed to inform your surgeon and eye care team about every aspect of your eyes, from the rods and cones in the retina, to the optical properties of the cornea.
AN EXPERIENCE FOCUSED ON YOU
You will also undergo a detailed consultation with your surgeon, describing all of the potential risks and benefits for your particular situation, and to determine which procedure is optimal for you.
AS UNIQUE AS YOUR FINGERPRINT
Like a fingerprint, each cornea is unique. Because no two eyes are the same, LASIK may not be the procedure of choice for everyone.
At Monson Vision, we take a highly customized, tailored approach to the unique vision needs of each individual.
Monson Vision is one of the few centers in the country that offer not only SmILE, but the full-spectrum of safe, effective modern alternatives to LASIK including
Advanced Surface Ablation
Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE)
KAMRA Near Vision Inlays
These procedures allow us to take a safe, custom tailored approach to the features of each individual's anatomy and vision needs. Safety, anatomic variations, unique vision needs, consideration of development of future technologies all play a role.
Individualized planning, and high customization is one of the hallmarks of the approach Monson Vision, and one of the secrets to our outcomes.
How Does it Work?
Corneal InlayView Video
The KAMRA inlay sits in the first few layers of the eye known as the cornea. Smaller and thinner than a contact lens, the inlay is a mini-ring with an opening — or pinhole — in the center. This pinhole allows only focused light to enter your eye. The KAMRA inlay is placed in only one of your eyes, allowing you to see up close, while maintaining your distance vision in both eyes. Monson Vision is one of only a few centers in Utah with the technology or expertise to provide KAMRA inlay.
Sometimes I would wake up in the morning and think, “I must have accidentally slept in my contacts because I can see”... and then I remember that I don’t wear contacts anymore! Dr. Monson was very kind to give me his personal phone number to contact him with any concerns post-surgery.- Dakota F.
