INTACS

Intacs (intra-stromal corneal ring segments) is a newer surgical procedure for patients with moderate keratoconus or other forms of ectasia (corneal weakness). The procedure helps patients achieve better functional vision, preventing or postponing a cornea transplant. The surgery involves placing small half-ring-shaped segments inside the cornea to buttress, strengthen, and reshape the cornea to reduce near-sightedness and astigmatism.  

After the procedure, patients may still require glasses or contact lenses to see most clearly, but the prescription, comfort, and quality of vision is usually improved.  Preventing or postponing a corneal transplant has helped many patients achieve a better lifestyle. 


As cornea specialists in DFW, Dallas-Fort Worth, Dr. Koreishi and Dr. Ple-plakon strive to provide the best cornea care, availability, and patient education.
