What to Expect: Recovery

KAMRA™ Inlay Recovery

As with any eye surgery, healing is a process. Adhering to your doctor’s recovery instructions will accelerate your progress.

How Soon Will I See Results?

It is important to remember that the amount and pace of near vision improvement varies by individual. While some patients see an improvement within the first week to a month, others way require additional time to heal. Most patients resume normal activities and return to work within 24-48 hours.

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

  1. Avoid using your reading glasses
  2. Take your medications as prescribed by your doctor, including artificial tears
  3. Keep your follow-up appointments with your doctor

Recovery Takes Patience

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.
