Restoring quality of life through better vision...
A new FDA approved option for keratoconus filling the gap between contact lenses and a corneal transplant!

Keratoconus is a progressive eye disease, which causes a thinning of the cornea, the clear front surface of the eye.  As keratoconus progresses, the quality of one's vision deteriorates and contact lenses or glasses no longer become a satisfactory solution for most people.  For many, an invasive corneal transplant was the only option – until now!  Intacs prescription inserts are an exciting new option between contacts and a corneal transplant that may be the best possible option to stabilize the cornea and improve vision. 

Intacs prescription inserts are indicated for use in the correction of nearsightedness and astigmatism for patients with Keratoconus, where contact lenses and glasses are no longer suitable. 

Intacs prescription inserts are approved by the FDA for keratoconus under a Humanitarian Device Exemption (HDE).
