Keratoconus in phase I, II and III can be treated with a minimally invasive treatment like INTACS or MYORING.
Thanks to special rings made of a plastic material that are inserted inside the cornea, the cornea itself assume a more regular shape. Keratoconus treatment with this procedure improves vision and contact lenses tolerance.
The advantages of this surgery are its reversibility (it is possible to easily remove the rings, bringing everything back to its original status), a quick vision recovery, the absence of pain during post-op and a quick overall recovery.
INTACS are rings made of a plastic material that are inserted in the peripheral part of the cornea: they flatten and regularize the central part of the keratoconus.
The MYORING ia single ring that is placed in the central part of the cornea and cures corneal irregularities. It is an innovation in keratoconus treatment that is still not that widespread among italian cornea specialist.
The corneal topography is truly important when choosing between INTACS and MYORING in case of keratoconus.
Luca Formica, CataniaVotazione: EccellenteI met Dr. Badalà with a vision of 20/100 in each eye as a result of advanced Keratoconus. Other doctors did not advice for surgery. In two months I overcome my fear and I underwent corneal transplant surgery.
Immediat... Keep on reading this reviewely before entrance in the operating room, Dr. Badalà and the nursing team were joking with me, making the atmosphere nice and relaxed. The surgery was under general anesthesia and lasted two hours.
Upon recovery the eye was a little itchy and burning, anyhow totally bearable. I was dischenged from the hospital the next day without a patch, but wearing a protecting eye shell. The most beautiful thing in my life was getting my vision back 20/30 days after surgery and rediscovering things I had forgotten.
Today, 5 years after surgeries (I had corneal transplant in both eyes) I have 20/20 vision with a very simple pair of glasses that I use only at night for driving and I see well and enjoy details that I have not seen for a long, long time.
Obviously, I’m careful with my life but I have a normal life, I do everything I like to do, like play soccer, go biking, go to the gym, play videogames, and so on.
I’m appreciative of the gift of vision, for which I thank Doctor Badalà and his team.
