Overview

 

Intacs Corneal Implants


INTACS Are Small Prescription Ring Inserts That Are Implanted In The Cornea For The Correction Of Keratoconus And Mild Myopia (Up To - 4.00D).

They Are Particularly Well Suited To Those Who Have Been Turned Down For Laser Vision Correction Because Of Thin Corneas And Also Those Worried About The Irreversibility Of Laser Surgery. The Implants Can Be Removed Or Exchanged If Necessary.

INTACS Inserts Are Clear, Thin Prescription Inserts Placed In The Periphery Of The Cornea By An Ophthalmologist During A Brief Outpatient Procedure. INTACS Inserts Reshape The Curvature Of The Cornea From Within, Enhancing The Natural Shape Of Your Eye To Correct Mild Nearsightedness. Because No Tissue Is Removed (As Would Be In Lasik Or Other Eye Laser Surgery, Natural Optics Are Enhanced And The Structural Integrity Of The Cornea Is Maintained.

Because No Tissue Is Removed, Natural Optics Are Enhanced And The Structural Integrity Of The Cornea Is Maintained.

Intacs Corneal Implants Cannot Be Felt, Are No More Visible Than A Contact Lens And Require No Maintenance. With Intacs Corneal Implants, Many People Are Actually Seeing Better Than 20/201. Intacs Inserts Are FDA Approved And Are Supported By More Than Ten Years Of Clinical Studies.

And, Because Intacs Corneal Implants Are Corneal Implants, They Can Be Removed Or Replaced If You Desire Or If Your Vision Needs Change. In U.S. Clinical Studies, Of The Very Few People Who Had Their Intacs Corneal Implants Removed, All Were Subsequently Corrected To 20/20 Or Better.


How Do INTACS Work?

INTACS Inserts Gently Enhance The Natural Shape Of The Cornea To Allow Light Rays To Focus Precisely On The Retina, Thus Producing A Clear, Sharp Image.

To Understand How INTACS Inserts Produce Good Vision, Imagine A Tent With A Domed Top, A Shape Similar To That Of Your Cornea. If The Sides Of The Tent Are Extended Outward, The Top Flattens Slightly.

INTACS Inserts Work In A Similar Fashion. When INTACS Inserts Are Placed In The Periphery (Sides) Of The Cornea, Outside The Vital Central Optical Zone, They Gently Reshape The Centre Or "Top" Of The Cornea. This Prescription Reshaping Flattens The Centre Just Enough To Allow Light Rays Entering Your Eyes To Focus Properly. For Most Patients, The Result Is Clear Vision.


The Procedure For INTACS

Anesthetic Drops Are Used To Numb The Eye, Which Is Held Open Throughout The Procedure To Prevent Blinking.

Step 1: - The Intralase Femtosecond Laser (Used For Creation Of The Flap In Lasik At Centre For Sight) Is Used To Create A 1mm Incision And Separate Channels Within The Substance Of The Cornea.


Step 2:- INTACS Rings Are Then Inserted Into The Channels One At A Time. The Eye Is Stabilized And Rings Rotated Into Place.

The Cornea Has Several Layers To It, Like A Pad Of Paper. Making A Place For The INTACS Is Like Separating Two Pages Just Enough To Create A Space.

INTACS Gently Reshape The Curvature Of Your Cornea So That Light Rays Focus Properly On The Retina. Objects In The Distance, Which Once Appeared Blurry, Become Sharp And Clear.

The Procedure For INTACS Is Safe And Quick.
