Restoring quality of life through better vision...
Intacs corneal implants is an FDA approved option for
the keratoconus patient that is in-between
contact lenses and a corneal transplant!
Keratoconus is a progressive eye disease,
which causes a thinning of the cornea, the clear front surface of the eye.
As keratoconus progresses, the quality of one's vision deteriorates and contact lenses or glasses no longer become a satisfactory solution for
most people. Historically, a corneal transplant has been the only
option – until Intacs!
Intacs corneal implants are an exciting
option for individuals experiencing an intolerance to contact lens and are facing a corneal transplant. Intacs corneal implants may be the best possible option to stabilize the
cornea, improve vision and potentially defer the need for a corneal transplant.
Intacs corneal implants are indicated for use in the correction of nearsightedness and astigmatism associated with keratoconus where contact
lenses and glasses are no longer suitable.
Intacs corneal implants
are approved by the FDA for keratoconus under a Humanitarian
Device Exemption (HDE).
