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.
Alessandro Bianchetti, Bergamo (Rogno)Votazione: EccellenteI have suffered from keratoconus in both eyes since 1996. In December 2014, after have used semi-rigid contact lenses for years, I underwent a corneal transplant with DALK (lamellar) tecnique, performed by Dr. Badalà in...

The next day, I didn’t have to wear the blindfold and, despite a slight discomfort due to the light, I already noticed an improvement in my eyesight during vision test with eye chart. Everything went well and in the morning I left the hospital without any bandage.
At first I was very scared because I had thousands of questions in my mind: Will I fell pain? Is it worth it? When will I recover my eyesight? How long will be the convalescence?
I didn’t fell any pain (just a little discomfort during the first week). The stitches (about 16) didn’t give me any problem, as if they were not there.
The only problem is remember to put the different eye drops. Now I see 10/10 with soft lenses and, with a light heart, I will undergo surgery in the other eye in March 2016.
It is absolutely worth it!
