Intacs (Intrastromal Cornea Ring Segments)

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. You may notice an improvement in your uncorrected vision (without glasses) the next day.


Intacs® are tiny (0.25mms thick) acrylic ring segments (see figure above).
