Trade an Eye for an Eye

Do you have difficulty reading small print, get headaches after being on your computer, or hold newspapers at arm’s length? These symptoms may indicate presbyopia, a natural eye condition that impairs the eye’s ability to focus on close objects. Presbyopia usually develops at around age 40 and substantially impacts quality of life.

Did you know?

  • Over 1 billion people in the world had presbyopia (age-related farsightedness) in 2005. Of those, 517 million did not have adequate correction with eyeglasses.
  • By 2020, over 2 billion people will be presbyopic.
  • 2 in 3 patients would consider getting a procedure to reduce their dependence on reading glasses.
  • 2x as many people are more concerned about depending on glasses than finding wrinkles or going grey.

While reading glasses are a quick and easy way to correct presbyopia, they are a major inconvenience for patients who constantly switch between taking them on and off. Plus, some patients would prefer another option that makes them look as young as they feel.

Up until now, reading glasses have been the only way to correct presbyopia. Not anymore! Jacksoneye, one of Illinois’ premier ophthalmology practices for over 22 years, is introducing an advanced, FDA-approved eye procedure that not only corrects vision but also can eliminate the need for reading glasses.

The KAMRA™️ inlay procedure is the solution that your patients have been waiting for. It recently received FDA approval in April 2015, after having been successfully used in the world for 10 years in over 20,000 patients.

The KAMRA inlay procedure:

  • Restores near vision and provides a natural range of sight from near to far without blurry zones.
  • Enables patients to read and see things up close without glasses.
  • Helps patients live their lives uninterrupted and with more confidence.

“I am thrilled to be one of the few eye doctors nationwide to offer KAMRA, the only technology in the United States that can correct nearsightedness,” says Dr. Mitchell A. Jackson, the Founder and Medical Director of Jacksoneye. “I am also proud that we will be supporting our community by donating all used reading glasses to those in need.”

Jacksoneye has set up a charitable program, appropriately called KAMRA-KARMA, to distribute all collected reading glasses to people in need in our local community.

I take pride in building real relationships with my patients and my community, so a procedure that helps both at the same time is the ultimate win-win. – Mitchell A. Jackson, MD
