Keratoconus - Cornea Replacement

Wang Vision 3D Cataract and LASIK Center, Nashville, Tennessee

Eye surgery history made
By M.B. Owens,

May 24, 2004

In another breakthrough procedure for Nashville, Dr. Ming Wang of the Wang Vision 3D Cataract and LASIK Center, performed on Thursday the first surgery of its type in Tennessee to correct the eye condition called keratoconus on a 45-year old man. Keratoconus is the most common condition that uses cornea replacement as the primary treatment. The condition is a genetic corneal disease in which the cornea is weakened and bulges forward into a cone shape causing a progressive loss of vision.

The new procedure uses Intacs, which are intracorneal ring segments placed in the cornea to hold it up and increase its strength.

The Food and Drug Administration approved the procedure earlier this year.
