Cell phones, intacs and keratoconus

A question which has been posed to us by one forum member is related to the use of cell phones. Smart phones have proliferated and we have i phone, android phones and the like. These phones may emit radiation. So logical question is can they move the newer intacs or worsen the keratoconus disease. We do not know of any study which point to this. If you analyze the pathophysiology of the disease,you will realize it is due to lack of bonding between the collagen fibrils of the cornea.Radiation has not been shown as a causative factor. Cell phones wilL therefore not have any effect. Still, lets use caution, for who knows what studies 30 years from now will show.

Labors of keratoconus patients

This labor day,lets reflect on how patients suffering from keratoconus have to live their lives. Wearing thick glasses which give headaches, glare and at best only blurry vision.

Pain after INTACS

A dentist mentioned she was in pain after Intac surgery. So what are the causes for pain after intacs surgery. Intacs, as you may recall are small plastic segment which are implanted in tunnels created in the cornea. These tunnels are created at a predetermined depth. The thin cornea with bulging apex is typical of keratoconus. Intacs push up this weakened corneal segment to come in line with the line of sight. The pressure exerted from the intacs segment can induce tension which may be felt as pain. Studies have shown that intacs may impinge on a corneal nerve causing persistent pain. Other reasons for pain may be corneal drying, erosions or a stitch.
A proper corneal evaluation done by an intacs expert can help diagnose the cause of pain after intacs insertion procedure.

MRI AND INTACS

Q. I live in new york.I have had intacs on my eyes to correct keratoconus. I recently was advised a MRI for my shoulder. My radiologist asked me to check it with a corneal intacs specialist
A. Intacs are ring segments made from PMMA, a kind of plastic. They do not have any metal in them. They come in different sizes. Since they do bot have any metal incorporated it is safe to do a X-ray, ct scan or even an MRI.
