Ring Implantation inside the Cornea

intacs rings inside the cornea

INTACS or Kera Rings are clear plastic segments are placed into the cornea. They typically only partially correct the optical defect present by making the cornea more rounded than conical. So additional optical aids or surgical intervention may be required to obtain full visual correction.

Dr Khalil implants these rings by first creating a curved tunnel in the cornea by the advanced technollogy of the Femtosecond Laser, instead of the classical mechanical system, rendering the operation more accurate, with much superior outcome.
