Abstract

This is a case report of two patients who underwent presbyopia correction with KAMRA corneal inlay (KAMRA; AcuFocus, Irvine, CA) combined with LASIK surgery. The surgical technique is thoroughly explained, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of the procedure. In both patients, near uncorrected visual acuity significantly improved and distance uncorrected visual acuity remained unchanged. There were no changes in the corneal topography after the corneal inlay implantation.
