I havn't had Intacs but when I looked in to it, the best results was said to be had by doing INTACS first and then wait three months for the cornea to settle down and THEN do CXL to lock the new shape in to place. You may want to ask around (have consultations) about this (and any other questions you may have) with various medical Drs/surgeons, before going ahead with surgery.

thanks Remo for the advise

with cxl or any other option, the side effect is the haze which never gets normal

even clinical trials for intacs share same worries

Prolonged Haze if its advanced KC, it can be treated with drops, but you have to remember CXL is for early/moderate KC, to stop it from progressing to advanced KC if progression is detected, and if the patient wishes to under go it.
