If you have had Intacs® and are interested in further
options to improve your vision, Dr. Brian, who is one of the
most experienced keratoconus
doctors, routinely evaluates patients who have had Intacs®
placed elsewhere. Further vision improvement can be an option
through 1) Intacs adjustments for different size, 2) removal
(also known as explant) of the upper Intac segment, 3) Holcomb
C3-R®, also called corneal
crosslinking, to stabilize keratoconus, and 4) CK (conductive
keratoplasty) to improve astigmatism.
If you have experienced poorer vision after Intacs®,
it may be due to the location of the segments and/or size
and/or number of segments placed. Planning Intacs® treatment
for patients is based on the individual measurements for each
eye of each patient. Dr. Brian can evaluate and help patients
who have not achieved a satisfactory result. Please contact
our office for information on keratoconus
causes and to explore the different keratoconus
Why choose Dr. Brian for your Intacs®?
Listen to Julie’s story about how having Intacs®
performed by a less experienced doctor led her to Dr. Brian
because the improperly placed Intacs®
worsened her vision. Dr. Brian was the first eye surgeon in
the U.S. to perform Intacs®
for keratoconus - in 1999.
Please click the
green button below to listen to Julie's story who had another
eye surgeon perform Intacs incorrectly and she experienced
worse vision. Julie admits that she didn't do
enough "homework" on her original Intacs surgeon.
She then came to Dr. Brian who fixed everything and got
her life back on track.
