An alternative to corneal transplants
Intacs® Corneal Implants for Keratoconus
Intacs are a transparent, micro0thin insert equipped with the patient’s perscription. It is placed between layers of corneal tissue and resahpes cornea curvature. This give patients improved vision while battling the symptoms of keratoconus.
No contacts or glasses required
Intacs are like contacts you never have to take out. Those suffering from keratoconus who no longer benefit from contacts or glasses are good candidates for the Intact. The design of the stabilizing device was created to help fight the effects of keratoconus from the inside-out by working to flatten the cornea. While it won’t cure keratoconus, placement of the Intac can prevent the need to have a cornea transplant in the future.
Comfort achieved through our advanced technology
Comfortable Recovery Process
The procedure to implant the Intacs is minimally-invasive, resulting in less trauma to the cornea and surgery site. This aids in a quicker recovery and small chance of astigmatism developing. Distortions and scarring will be minimized as well. With the Intac procedure, patients will notice an easy recovery process without effect on their daily comfort.
Designed to be permanent but can be removed
Can Be Exchanged if Vision Changes
You certainly won’t need to worry about Intacs falling out. Nor will you need to worry about permanence due to removal of tissue. Because Intacs are additive, they can be removed in the future should the need arise. If you find your prescription changing dramatically you can even exchange the Intacs for a new pair that match your new vision needs.
Improved Vision will be the only indicator it’s there
Cannot Be Felt
Once administered, you will not feel the Intacs in your eyes. Plus they are no more visible than contact lenses. The comfort and subtlety of this treatment option make them attractive to those suffering from keratoconus. An added bonus is the eliminated maintenance. See clearer without the hassle of upkeep.
