Intacs for Keratoconus and Myopia

For patients who are intolerant of contact lenses or are facing a cornea transplant, Dr. Jafri offers Intacs corneal inserts to improve the abnormal irregular astigmatism and steepness of the cornea. Intacs are tiny plastic inserts carefully implanted into the peripheral cornea. In addition to improving the corneal profile, a great advantage of Intacs is that no tissue needs to be removed, which is a concern in thinner corneas. Another advantageous feature is that Intacs are reversible, and can be removed at any time from the patients cornea if indicated. More information is available at http://www.intacsforkeratoconus.com/.
