Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


KAMRA inlay has become a well-known corneal implant which is used in the treatment of presbyopia, thousands of implants were inserted due to the increased demand on spectacles independence in the new era of refractive surgery. Ophthalmologists will face a dilemma if these patients present for a cataract surgery. This is a case report of a unilateral mature cataract in an eye that had previously undergone FEMTO-LASIK refractive surgery with KAMRA insertion; there were no changes in the surgical technique, except for few ocular rotations to improve visualisation. Contact A-scan biometry was used and Shammas-no history formula was effective in calculating the power of the intraocular lens, but Haigis and Hoffer Q formulas were more accurate. Even though the implant was recentered and the patient complained of dry eyes prior to the cataract surgery, the patient preserved her original visual acuities and no complications occurred both during and post phacoemulsification.
