Khanna Institute to Provide Intralase Assisted Intacs Placement for Keratoconus
Date:4/15/2010

Intacs placement for Keratoconus treatment can be more precise if Intralase technology is used to make the channels.

(Vocus) April 15, 2010 -- Khanna Institute announced that it will provide Intralase assisted Intacs placement for keratoconus management.

keratoconus is a devastating condition which affects 1 in 2000 patients.It is a sight threatening disease.It occurs due to defective collagen in the cornea, which is the clear part of the eye. It progresses during puberty and young adulthood. The cornea thins and sags down.Intacs help to provide support and improve the shape of the deformed cornea. This helps in improving higher order aberrations and thus vision.

Intacs have to be placed at a predetermined depth. Mechanical methods have been used to create the channel. Studies have shown that creation of the channels with IntraLase (IntraLase Corp., Irvine, Calif.) is less traumatic and more accurate than using a mechanical keratome. The intacs come in different sizes. The Intralase can create channels of different sizes, which is a disntict advantage over mechanical keratomes. Also with the approval of the expanded range of Intacs, Intralase will be able to provide varying sizes of the channels. The second advantage is the accurate depth placement. If the Intacs are placed too superficailly they can erode to the surfac.

Dr.Khanna is happy that he will be providing more technology and accuracy to better help the patients. Intacs, as you may know may be covered financially by medical insurance. It is an outpatient procedure.Intacs can delay the need for corneal transplantation.
