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.
Matteo Crisà, Palermo (Carini)Votazione: EccellenteAbout two years ago I was diagnosed with keratoconus in both eyes.
At first I was very discouraged because the doctor told me that the only possible solution would be the corneal transplant; then, surfing the net, I c... Keep on reading this reviewame across Dr. Badalà website, where there were shown the different methods for the treatment of keratoconus and I decided to book a visit.
Dr. Badalà suggested me to undergo the Cross Linking surgery in both eyes at a distance of about three months of each other.
The surgery was performed under local anesthesia and throughout the treatment I didn’t feel any discomfort.
After a couple of hours, exhausted from the anesthesia, the eye was burning and watering. After a painkiller, the discomfort eased and then it disappeared. The next morning I didn’t feel any discomfort.
The results of the surgery have gone above and beyond my wildest expectations, actually, as well as it stopped the disease, I had a gradual but constant improvement of the visual field from the first six months after surgery.
Before the operation I could see blurry and with the feeling of being against the light, I felt dazzled; a few months after surgery these disorders were attenuated until it completely disappears as the months went by. The curvature of the cornea is much improved. Myopia and astigmatism have been significantly reduced.
I may conclude saying that my experience was positive and I thank Dr. Badalà for his professionalism and humanity.
