Keratoconus is a degenerative non-inflammatory disorder of the eye in which structural changes within the cornea cause it to thin and change to a more conical shape than its normal even curve. Keratoconus can cause substantial distortion of the vision, with multiple images, streaking and sensitivity to light all often reported by the patient.

intact surgery?

i have had keratoconus for 2 years now and it is gettting worse, they have mentioned INTACT SURGERY, but i know nothing abt it has anyone else had this or heard of it.



I have had Keratoconus for over 20 years and just had intacs in my nontransplanted eye and it did not improve vision. But it did allow my cornea to flatten out so that they will be able to remove my cataract next year. This improves vision. I got the cataract removed in my left eye and I now have 20/20 vision without glasses or contacts. Hope this helps!
