Intacs o Myoring

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.

Votazione: Eccellente
Problem: Keratoconus
I recently (about two weeks ago) underwent corneal transplant surgery for my right eye which has been affected by keratoconus for over 10 years. I have chosen to have this intervention done abroad and I reached Dr. Badal... Keep on reading this reviewa.

I was calm a few days before the surgery, but when the day came I got quite nervous, but I lost this feeling once the procedure began under local anesthesia. I couldn't see or feel anything during surgery, which was my initial concern. I did feel some pain during the first night after the anesthetic started to wear off, but the next days I only felt a minor discomfort.

My vision was extremely poor before the transplant, I could barely count my fingers and did not see any letters on the vision chart.

The same day of surgery I could already see much better.  Just one week after surgery my vision without glasses improved to 4/10.

I can say that Dr. Badala and his staff were very polite, patient, helpful and have a professional attitude. I am grateful for everything they have done! For me there was really  nothing unsatisfying during this whole experience.

I wouldn’t have second thoughts to contact Dr. Badala in case of any other eye problem or intervention I would need.
