Intacs® corneal implants is an FDA approved option for the keratoconus patient who have inadequate vision with contact lenses and glasses.
Keratoconus is a progressive eye disease, which causes 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 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.
If you have Keratoconus, contact Bellevue LASIK and Cataract today to see if this is an option to help improve your vision.
