Intacs (Intrastromal Cornea Ring Segments)
INTACS inserts are indicated for the correction of mild myopia ( 1 to 3 diopters). INTACS® are tiny and virtually invisible plastic arcs that are meant to remain permanently within your cornea. However, they can be removed or replaced if necessary. Your doctor places INTACS® inserts in your cornea by a brief, outpatient surgical procedure that does not involve a laser.
