DETAILS OF THIS VISION CORRECTION

Treatments to improve and preserve your vision

Cliniques Michel Pop offer two recognized treatments: corneal cross-linking and segment insertion (Intacs TM ).Both approaches consist in reshaping the cornea to correct deformations and halt the progression of vision loss. The administration of medicated drops and the insertion of segments under the surface of the cornea effectively counteract the keratoconus and preserve or even improve your vision !

Corneal cross-linking and intacs are used to treat keratoconus. Keratoconus is a disease of the cornea that causes vision distortions. If you suffer from this condition, you will be very pleased to learn that non-invasive, effective treatments now exist to control its progression.

Steps and follow-up

In your surgeon’s care from start to finish for professional and reassuring care.

  • When you come in for an initial consultation, we'll have you fill out a medical questionnaire.
  • We’ll then run a series of screening tests and have you meet the surgeon.
  • Your surgeon will inform you of the benefits, risks, and potential complications depending on the recommended treatment and your eye situation
  • This is the perfect time to ask any questions you may have.
  • If you decide to make an appointment for surgery, we’ll give you a surgery consent form and postoperative care instructions so that you can read them carefully at home. If you decide to wait and make your appointment at a later date, we’ll email all of the documents to you.

For a few years now, two recognized treatments have been used to reduce and even stop keratoconus from progressing, thereby avoiding a cornea transplant.

Dr. Pop offers two recognized treatments: corneal cross-linking and segment insertion (Intacs™). Both approaches work by reshaping the cornea to correct deformations and prevent further vision loss.

By administering medicated drops and inserting segments under the surface of the cornea, it’s possible to treat keratoconus and preserve or even improve your vision.

During your consultation with Dr. Pop, he’ll suggest the best approach for your vision situation.

  • Your post-treatment appointment gives your surgeon a chance to make sure your eyes have reacted well to the treatment (24 or 72 hours after treatment). Patients are asked to come in for a second checkup one month after treatment. After that, checkups will depend on the progession or stability of the keratoconus.
