LASIK XTRA: CORNEAL STRENGTHENING

KXL® SYSTEM FOR CORNEAL CROSSLINKING

The KXL® System achieves Accelerated Cross-Linking in just minutes by increasing the UVA power and reducing the exposure time while maintaining the same total energy on the eye as standard cross-linking.

Procedures performed with the KXL® System include Accelerated Cross-Linking and LASIK Xtra. These procedures have the potential to:

• Enhance LASIK surgery outcomes
• Restore corneal strength
• Stops the progression of keratoconus and ectasia
• Slow or eliminate the development of acute keratoconus

Lasik Xtra is 3-minute procedure performed during LASIK eye surgery and is comprised of the following steps:

1. LASIK eye surgery performed as usual
2. Riboflavin (vitamin B2) eye drops are applied to the cornea
3. The riboflavin-soaked cornea is illuminated with ultra-violet A (UVA) light
4. The light cross-links the collagen fibers within the cornea, making it stronger

· Non-invasive, fast
· Performed during your LASIK procedure
