Intacs Corneal Implants - What If My Vision Changes?

Exchangability with Intacs Corneal Implants
Unlike other permanent refractive procedures, Intacs corneal implants can be exchanged to provide enhancements to your vision.  Due to their unique design and properties, adjustments can be made in minutes without sacrificing any of the benefits of a tissue preserving procedure provided you remain within the corrective range.  In addition, Intacs inserts continue to be removable, giving you the patient, total confidence.

For you and your eyes, change is inevitable

Between ages 40 and 50, virtually everyone develops an age-related eye condition called presbyopia.  Presbyopia makes it difficult to focus on objects up close or in dimly lit environments.  The onset of presbyopia is when many people begin to rely on reading glasses.

Presbyopia occurs when the lens of the eye loses its ability to focus on objects at close range.

Keeping options open

Although no refractive surgery can prevent the changes that cause presbyopia, Intacs corneal implants can provide you with excellent vision today and options for the future. Intacs corneal implants are different than other vision correction procedures because they provide you with the flexibility to change as your visual needs change. Because Intacs corneal implants can be removed or replaced, they provide multiple options as your eyes change naturally with age.

With other vision correction procedures, such as LASIK, you are forced to make a decision today on how you will correct your changing vision in the future.

With Intacs corneal implants , you don't have to compromise. You can choose what works best today for your current needs, and leave your options open in the future.

When you decide to have a vision correction procedure, it is wise to consider your future needs as well as those of today.
