Have You Had Intacs Elsewhere?

Have you had Intacs®? Keratoconus Specialist – Brian S. Boxer Wachler, MD

If you have had Intacs® and are interested in further options to improve your vision, Dr. Brian, who is one of the most experienced Keratoconus doctors, routinely evaluates patients who have had Intacs® placed elsewhere. Further vision improvement can be an option through 1) Intacs® adjustments for different size, 2) removal (also known as explant) of the upper Intac segment, 3) Holcomb C3-R®, also called corneal crosslinking, to stabilize Keratoconus, and 4) CK (conductive keratoplasty) to improve astigmatism.

If you are considering having Intacs® done by a surgeon other than Dr. Brian, here are some compelling reasons you want to re-think that and have Dr. Brian perform your Intacs®.

Watch Patients Discuss Keratoconus Treatment with Dr. Brian


If you have experienced poorer vision after Intacs®, it may be due to the location of the segments and/or size and/or number of segments placed. Planning Intacs® treatment for patients is based on the individual measurements for each eye of each patient. Dr. Brian can evaluate and help patients who have not achieved a satisfactory result. Please contact our office for information on Keratoconus signs, Keratoconus causes and to explore the different Keratoconus treatment options.

Why choose Dr. Brian for your Intacs®? Listen to Julie’s story about how having Intacs® performed by a less experienced doctor led her to Dr. Brian because the improperly placed Intacs® worsened her vision. Dr. Brian was the first eye surgeon in the U.S. to perform Intacs® for Keratoconus – in 1999.

Please click the green button below to listen to Julie’s story who had another eye surgeon perform Intacs® incorrectly and she experienced worse vision. Julie admits that she didn’t do enough “homework” on her original Intacs® surgeon. She then came to Dr. Brian who fixed everything and got her life back on track.

Chart Review and Consultation For Out-of-Town Patients

Many out-of-town patients would like Dr. Brian to do a complimentary review of their medical records and make a preliminary determination of candidacy. This is useful before planning a trip to Beverly Hills.

Some people’s friends ask them, “Why are you thinking of travelling to Beverly Hills for your eye procedure?” They typically answer with, “I deserve the best and I want to go to the best doctor!”

These are the three easy steps for your complimentary chart review with Dr. Brian:

  • Along with your last 2 or 3 eye exams, please be sure to include a color copy of your corneal mapping. Color corneal mapping is a very important tool, along with your exam history, to determine your candidacy. The last 2 years of your total eye history will be used to make this preliminary determination.
  • Inside the envelope, please be sure to include a cover sheet with your name address, phone number and email address and the words, “Keratoconus Record Review”, so that we may optimize communication with you.
  • Enclose with your letter a copy of your records.
