Singapore Performs Cutting-edge Eye Surgeries
Date:4/9/2010

tion to presbyopia – a surgical procedure called KAMRA.

KAMRA
This new procedure is very safe and very fast, taking only about 15 minutes. It is an approved operation, coming at the end of almost a decade of cutting-edge research.

"This is the first and only really successful treatment for presbyopia. There is no longer any need to suffer in silence. What the surgeon will do is simply cut a flap or incision using a laser, then implant the KAMRA inlay in the cornea, center it and close the flap," explain Prof Tan.

The tiny device, which is much small than a contact lens, is almost invisible to the naked eye, and needs to be implanted in only one eye. No stitching is required. Unlike other implants, this one can be removed and replaced when newer "upgraded" versions come along.

What's more, the improvement to vision is almost immediate. For some patients, they will be able to tell the difference after only one day. The majority of patients notice the improvement within the week and visual quality will continue to improve with time.

Currently, this procedure is only performed in a handful of countries. Apart from Singapore, only Japan in Asia offers this treatment. (KAMRA is still at clinical trial stage in the US) This day procedure costs about Singapore Dollars $4,000.

The SNEC is also one of few places in the world to offer evolutionary methods of cornea transplant. Each year, the centre carries out about 250 cornea transplants, of which a full third comprises foreign patients. With a success
