ABOUT INTACS CORNEAL IMPLANTS
Keratoconus is a condition that causes the cornea to thin, weaken, and adopt a cone-like shape, which typically has a poor effect on the patient's vision. To remedy this condition, our board-certified ophthalmologists at Focal Point Vision in San Antonio, TX are pleased to offer a number of advanced solutions, including Intacs corneal implants. These tiny devices are used to help the cornea adopt a normal, healthy shape by flattening the tissue. In turn, this works to address any vision impairments you may have been experiencing as a direct result of keratoconus. Intacs implants are highly effective and produce wonderful results for many individuals.

HOW IS INTACS SURGERY DONE?
Surgery with the Intacs corneal implant may last between 10 – 30 minutes. Before we begin, a member of our team will desensitize your eye with special drops. Once you're fully numb, we then create a small incision into the cornea using advanced laser technology. As soon as the layers of your cornea have been precisely separated, we will insert the device into its ideal placement. Intacs can be performed alongside another laser-assisted procedure, such as refractive laser-assisted cataract surgery (ReLACS).
Following your treatment, we will monitor the condition of your eye for some time and prescribe antibiotic drops before releasing you to heal at home.
