Intacs Intracorneal Ring Segments
The Food and Drug Administration has approved Intacs™ for the treatment of keratoconus. It is approved for the reduction of myopia and astigmatism for those patients with Keratoconus unable to achieve adequate vision with contact lenses or glasses. At Mass. Eye and Ear, Intacs™ are inserted by using the IntraLase laser to create small curved incisional pockets in the cornea. This approach prevents scarring defects and helps to flatten the cornea, thus minimizing astigmatism and distortions in the visual outcome.
