Intrastromal Rings

Intrastromal rings are also called as intracorneal ring segments or corneal inserts. Two tiny, crescent-shaped, clear plastic inserts will be inserted into your cornea to support the shape, flatten the cone and improve vision. This technique can slow the progression of keratoconus and restore the cornea’s shape to almost normal. This is a temporary measure as after the corneal shape is achieved, the inserts can be removed.
