Although LASIK is by far the most popular type of vision correction surgery, it’s not always the ideal solution for everyone. If you suffer from moderate myopia (nearsightedness) or astigmatism, Intacs™ may be an effective alternative solution for you.
Recovery and Results
After the surgery, you may experience some very mild discomfort. You will remain in our recovery area for a short time, your eyes will be checked, and you will then be released to go home. The majority of Intacs patients are able to return to their regular activities within 24 hours.
Common side effects include watery eyes, itching, burning, or scratchiness for a few hours. It helps to take a nap for these first few hours. Be sure to avoid rubbing your eyes or putting pressure on your eyes for several weeks.
You will begin to see dramatic improvement in your vision on the first day following surgery.
