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.



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.
