Eye Implants to Correct Vision
Intrasomal corneal ring segments or Intacs are an FDA-approved non-laser surgery procedure to help correct nearsightedness.
Intacs are tiny, clear prescription eye inserts. They are flexible, crescent-shaped rings that are placed in the periphery of the cornea by an ophthalmologist during a simple outpatient procedure. Intacs inserts help flatten the front of the eye, helping to decrease mild nearsightedness in patients.
Intacs are placed in a short procedure performed in your ophthalmologist's office.
First, the ophthalmologist numbs your eyes using specially medicated eye drops. Then, the doctor makes a small incision at the top of your eye.
