Corneal Collagen Cross-linking: building a stronger cornea.
LASIK, LASEK, Xtra® using the innovative KXL system enhances the bindings of corneal collagen molecules and adds strength to the cornea. It eliminates any side-effects and provides safety for patients with extreme myopia.
The MAB (Medical Advosiroy Board) members chosen by Avedro Inc. U.S.A. are comprised of ophthalmologic specialists from around the world. And each member is contributing to the development of new medical technologies with corneal cross-linking.
- 01 After undergoing the standard LASIK surgery, riboflavin (Vitamin B2) VibeX eye-drops are applied to the cornea and left to soak for 90 seconds.
- 02 The cornea is illuminated with 45mW/㎠ ultra violet light for 90 seconds using the KXL system.
- 03 Biomechanical strength is added to the cornea, strengthening the collagen binding.
Already more than 100,000 surgeries performed over the World.
100,000 Cross-linking surgeries have already been performed in the world. It is a procedure that has been used to treat keratoconus for the past 10 years. As patients who have undergone the cross-linking procedure after their LASIK or LASEK surgery have shown a stable vision as well as no signs of myopia regression or keratoconus.
