Renowned Eye Surgeon Helps Patients Correct Near Vision With New FDA-Approved Lens

Dean-Dornic-FIDr. Dean Dornic, Medical Director of the Laser Eye Center of Carolina in Cary and Eye Specialists of Carolina in Smithfield, announced Monday he is now performing a revolutionary new eye procedure: the Kamra Inlay. Dr. Dornic is one of the first eye surgeons in the country to perform this newly FDA approved surgery that can dramatically reduce your dependence on reading glasses or bifocals. The Kamra Inlay is performed as a simple in office procedure with little down time.

The Kamra Inlay is designed for people over the age of 40 who have good distance vision but are affected by presbyopia: a progressive loss of near vision that is corrected with reading glasses or bifocals. Unlike most other surgical options for presbyopia, the Kamra Inlay improves near vision without causing a loss of distance vision.

The KAMRA inlay sits in the first few layers of the eye known as the cornea. Much smaller and thinner than a contact lens, the inlay is a mini-ring with an opening in the center. By using this pinhole effect, the inlay focuses light that comes into the eye. This restores near vision while maintaining distance vision without blurry zones.

“Presbyopia is a frustrating, yet unavoidable problem that sooner or later affects everyone. With our active lifestyles and incessant need for perfect vision for all activities, KAMRA offers a safe and effective option to enjoy excellent vision for distance and near without glasses or contact lenses for age groups 40 and above.” said Dornic.

So if reading glasses or bifocals don’t fit into your lifestyle, why not call Dr. Dornic at the Laser Eye Center of Carolina to arrange a complimentary consultation to determine if the Kamra Inlay or one of their other vision correction procedures is right for you.

Laser Eye Center of Carolina is located at 3701 NW Cary Parkway, Cary, NC and the phone number is 919-467-9955. Eye Specialists of Carolina is located at 1609 E. Booker Dairy Road, Smithfield and the phone number is 919-938-2010.

Dr. Dornic will be appearing live on AM-1090 WTSB Radio to discuss the new Karma Inlay procedure on August 13th at 12:30pm.
