Kamra Inlay Recovery

What to Expect in Terms of Recovery

As with any surgery, healing is a process. Adhering to Dr. Kraff's recovery instructions will accelerate your progress. It is important to remember that the healing process will vary by individual. While some patients see an improvement within the first week to a month, others way require additional time. Most patients resume normal activities and return to work within 24-48 hours.

To enhance your recovery and near vision improvement, you should:

  • Avoid using your reading glasses
  • Take your medications as prescribed by Dr. Kraff, including artificial tears
  • Schedule and keep your follow-up check-ups

It is typical to experience some fluctuations in your vision in the first three to six months after surgery. This is often a sign of dry eye or your brain adapting to the new vision. These will likely stabilize. The key to success are to be patient with the recovery process and diligent in following your doctor's instructions. This video contains more information about the KAMRA® inlay recovery period.

Keep in mind that some KAMRA patients may still require reading glasses for activities such as reading tiny print or reading in low light. In addition, if the inlay is not centered properly or if the effects are not ideal, your doctor can safely remove the KAMRA inlay.
