Would You Recommend Intacs for a 27 Year Old Patient With Early Keratoconus?
February 26, 2009
I have a 27 year old patient with early keratoconus, with about 6 diopters of cylinder, best corrected with glasses to about 20/25. His K’s have been stable for a year. He wanted to know about Intacs- I told him that the results are pretty good, reversible if necessary so no bridges are burned, and a better option than PKP if PKP can be avoided. He also asked about the new riboflavin cross-linking for ectasia. I heard a lecture about that on AudioDigest- the preliminary results sound promising. I was hoping to hear from cornea surgeons about their experience with Intacs for kerataconus, and if they have more information about the new cross-linking treatment.
