ICRS are tiny plastic ring segments that are implanted in the cornea even though they are very small, their mass is enough to change the shape of the front surface of the eye and correct refractive error.
Imagining your cornea as a tent with curved top. If you push out the sides of the tent, the top flattens, similarly, when intacs inserts are placed in the side of the cornea, they flatten it just enough to correct Myopia and Keratoconus diseases
How Long Does The Surgery Take? It takes approximately 15 – 30 minutes to place intacs in your eye. The total procedure for one eye , including preparation time, is usually less than an hour.
