This innovative procedure is for the correction of reading glasses. Presbyopia – the need for reading glasses – typically occurs over the age of 45 because as the eyes age, they lose their ability to zoom from distant to near objects. Presbyopia will affect all of us at some point in our lives.
The Corneal Inlay is an implant that aims to reverse the effects of presbyopia and restore near and intermediate vision. It achieves this by using a tiny (3.8 mm diameter) microscopic black ring with a central 1.6 mm aperture that is only 5 microns thick. These dimensions are thinner than a single cell on the surface of the cornea and smaller than a contact lens.
The surgeon places the inlay in the non-dominant eye either through a flap created in the surface of the cornea or in a pocket created in the corneal tissue. The process usually takes less than 15 minutes. Once in place, the inlay allows only focused light to enter the eye while blocking unfocused light.
The principle is that a narrowed aperture to look through increases the depth of focus 1, sometimes referred to as the “pinhole effect” 2, allowing a full spectrum of vision from distance, intermediate, all the way to the tiniest line of print for near.
The “pinhole effect” is a similar concept to that found in photography where a narrowed aperture increases the depth of focus in the picture so objects both in the distance and in the foreground are seen with sharp relief.
Your surgeon, Dr. Kranemann Medical Director MD, FRCS(C), DABO, Ophthalmologist, is one of an elite group of surgeons worldwide that CorneaGen (the company behind Kamra) trained to perform this advanced revolutionary procedure.

Dear Dr. Kranemann, Many thanks in the nice, smooth and trouble free cataract surgery you carried out on both my eyes at Clearview Institute. I would like also to extend my thanks to all the staff of clearview. They are efficient, kind hearted and very helpful.
Dr. Kranemann is exceptionally intelligent and experienced. He is passionate about achieving perfect results for his patients, and proved it by correcting my father’s vision perfectly. We are very happy and grateful and highly recommend Dr. Kranemann.
