Houston Laser Surgery - Intacs Intracorneal Ring (ICR)
The Intacs Intracorneal Ring Segment is a device used to stabilize and reshape the cornea. This technology has been approved by the FDA to correct nearsightedness and subsequently received compassionate use status to treat irregular corneal conditions such as keratoconus.
The overall goal of intracorneal ring segments is to provide stability and some reduction in prescription. It is not used for eliminating glasses or contact lenses completely, but the majority of people notice better fitting contacts and improved vision after the procedure.
The procedure takes about 15 minutes to complete. There are no injections or scalpels, and only numbing eye drops are needed for anesthetic. A laser is used to create a tunnel within the cornea to match the size and curvature of the ring segment. The ring segments are then slid into place, like a finger into a glove. The segments act like braces to maintain the new shape.
When Intacs are used to treat a medical condition like an irregular cornea, some insurances will help cover the costs associated with the procedure.
