An Intrastromal Corneal Ring Segment (ICRS) is a small device implanted in the eye to correct vision. Intacs are implantable intracorneal ring segments (also known as ICRS or corneal rings). Intacs is a minimally invasive surgical option used primarily for the treatment of keratoconus. They can be replaced with different-size implants or removed for good. Patients have the option of replacing them with new rings at a later date if the prescription changes with age. If Intacs are removed, vision tends to return to the way it was before surgery within three months. Those receiving replacement Intacs have obtained good visual results as well, and no serious problems with repeating the procedure have been reported.

Patients with vision problems

The doctor places anesthetizing drops in the eye and may give a mild oral sedative before surgery. The pre-surgical preparation will vary depending on the type of anesthesia the doctor chooses. On the Day of the Procedure the physician will briefly discuss the details of the INTACS procedure and what to expect during the procedure.

The surgeon will place an instrument between the eyelids to hold the eye open during the procedure. Anesthetic drops may be placed in the eye. A surgeon creates a tunnel between layers of the corneal stroma, outside of the central optical zone. The total procedure, including the pre-surgical preparation, is usually completed in less than one hour. For treating nearsightedness, Intacs corrects vision by flattening the cornea to refocus light rays and improve vision. For keratoconus, Intacs work by flattening the steep part of the cornea or cone to reduce vision distortions.

Most people have a sharper vision the first day after surgery, but they may need a couple of days of relaxation to promote healing. Patients won’t feel the ring segments because they are beneath the cornea’s nerve endings. Other people can’t see them unless they look very closely into the eyes.
