About KAMRA™ Corneal Inlays
Approved by the Food and Drug Administration, KAMRA™ inlays are a major step forward in treating presbyopia, eliminating the need for bifocals and other forms of corrective lenses.
Presbyopia is a form of age-related farsightedness (hyperopia) that starts to occur in middle age. This is the result of the lenses of the eyes losing flexibility, which is a natural part of the aging process.
Thanks to the KAMRA™ inlay, patients can experience a much higher quality of vision, allowing them to read books, see objects at a distance, a see objects in between as well.
The Cost of KAMRA™ Corneal Inlays
The cost of KAMRA™ inlays can vary to some degree depending on the patient's needs. Because of that, offering a general price range online won't paint a full picture regarding the overall cost and benefits of treatment. With that said, we would be more than happy to provide you with a full cost breakdown during your consultation, which will help you understand the various considerations that go into the treatment process.
Factors Determining the Cost of KAMRA™ Corneal Inlays
Factors determining the cost of KAMRA™ inlays include the complexity of the patient's case, the location of the practice, and the eye care specialist at the practice. Some practices may also have special promotions and discounts associated with KAMRA™ inlays that affect the total cost of treatment.
How do KAMRA™ Inlays Compare to Other Presbyopia Treatments
Since KAMRA™ inlays are a new and advanced procedure, they cost more than other surgical and non-surgical treatments for presbyopia. Obviously KAMRA™ inlays cost more than getting bifocals or other kinds of corrective lenses. In many cases, KAMRA™ inlays also cost more than undergoing monovision LASIK, which is another popular option for treating presbyopia.
While the high price of great vision may seem to put the treatment out of reach, keep in mind that there is often no price that can be placed on the convenience of great vision without corrective lenses.
Does Insurance Cover KAMRA™ Corneal Inlays?
In general no, but keep in mind that insurance policies and providers vary. It's important to contact your insurance company directly to learn more about potential coverage of medical procedures.
Monthly Financing for KAMRA™ Corneal Inlays
Given the cost of KAMRA™ inlays, many patients turn to monthly financing options to help pay for the total cost of the procedure. These monthly financing options function much like a traditional loan or credit card, with patients paying for the total cost of care in installments. A reasonable interest rate will apply.
Making the Best Choice for Your Needs
There are so many options for treating presbyopia and improving vision in middle age and later in life. During the consultation process, we will be sure to go over all of these matters in greater detail. This will allow you to get answers to all of your questions and make empowered decisions about your many treatment options available.
