INTACS

Intacs® are clear, thin inserts called intrastromal corneal ring segments (ICRS) that are placed in the outer edge of the cornea.  They are inserted into a small channel that is created by a femtosecond laser, the most precise method available.  Intacs® reshape and normalize the cornea without removing any corneal tissue, allowing for a better contact lens fit. According to FDA guidelines, Intacs® corneal implants for the treatment of Keratoconus are intended for the reduction or elimination of myopia and astigmatism in patients with Keratoconus who are no longer able to achieve adequate vision with their contact lenses or glasses so that their functional vision may be restored and the need for a corneal transplant procedure can potentially be deferred.
