Are these for everyone? No -- though they were initially developed first for the correction of near-sightedness, they didnt pan out for this group of patients.However, a doctor in France suspected they might be good for patients with a condition called keratoconus. You will remember that the cornea is the clear dome on the front of the eye that functions as its major lens. This allows us to use lasers to correct near-sightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism. If you have keratoconus, your cornea is distorted and vision is blurry. While this is often correctable with hard contact lenses, the lenses are uncomfortable and dont correct the vision all that well.

Thank goodness, then, for Intacs!
