Hello All, I too have had a similar experience. The Keratoconus progressed in my left eye to the point where the intacs surgery was my only option. I've had the surgery successfully completed 7 days ago and although the day after my surgery, my vision did not noticably improve, my doctor said the surgery went extremely well. On day 7 today, I seem to be experiencing the side effects such as halos at night and fluctuating vision throughout the day, however still no noticeable improvement in my vision. I am hoping that when I do test for corrective lenses, I will regain 20/20 in that eye, something that I was not able to achieve before the surgery. I will continue to update as much as I can. I don't know if anyone else has had noticeable Improvement after a long period. Am I expecting results too soon? Thank you.

I'm 38 years old and I went to get LASIK and I found out I'm not a candidate since I have KC. They recommended me intacs since it's too advanced. I'm -9 on the left eye and I believe -7 on the right eye. They told me that after the intacs I'll still need glasses. Also, they said it has to be done one eye at a time. I have several questions for you here guys. Does any of you got the procedure done with a such high prescription like mine and what's the out come? Does the insurance cover this procedure? Is $7000 dollars reasonable for both eyes in NYC? I haven't wore contacts and I'm not planning either. Any suggestions you guys may have it's greatly appreciated.

Hi, I am day 4 post op on both eyes for both intacs and cross linking. My eyes still feel gritty but it's becoming less blurry. I have a follow up on Tuesday to see if there's been any vision improvement. So far, I'm not entirely sure.

Thank you for sharing.

Who was the Dr. who performed the intacs and crosslinking?

How much time passed between the two procedures?

It takes time for the cornea to settle down...3 months to 6 months with still changes that could occur up to a year, be it more slight.

Hi Everyone. Firstly I'm so glad I found such detailed posts going back a few years. It would be great to hear how everyone is doing now. I had CXL and intacts on my left eye 7 days ago. My left is -7. The pain is gone, though still a bit tender. I have had a bit of halos so far but nothing major. My vision has not improved so far. I am very nervous and I think I'm becoming quite negative and a pessimistic about the whole thing. Vision is blurry as before and I'm trying to focus on work and staying positive I need CXL on my right soon but no intacts. Hope you guys are well.
