Stabilize and Strengthen Corneas with this procedure
Corneal Cross-Linking (CXL)
Corneal Cross-Linking adds additional cross-links between the cornea and collagen fibers, which help keep the cornea from bulging and developing a cone shape. This procedure will strengthen the cornea and prevent it from thinning. Ultimately, you will benefit from improved vision and a lowered chance of needing a corneal transplant.
Eliminate Necessity of Corneal Transplant
Prevent Keratoconus Progression
By strengthening the links between the cornea and collagen fibers you can prevent the progression of keratoconus. This is a non-invasive way to handle keratoconus compared to common alternatives like corneal transplants. In fact, using CXL can potentially stave off the need for a corneal transplant altogether.
Enjoy Seeing Clearly with CXL
Improve Quality of Vision
In short, keratoconus causes distortions and vision problems. But with corneal cross-linking the eyes are able to build links and strengthen vision. This gives you a non-invasive way to take back control over your sight.
No Worries About Follow-Up Treatments
Corneal cross-linking isn’t a procedure you’ll need to have performed consistently over the period of your life, it’s a one-time treatment. This out-patient treatment will be over in roughly an hour and then you’ll be on your way to enjoying your heightened vision.
Typically Complete in 1 Hour
Simple Out-Patient Procedure
The procedure is non-invasive and lasts for 60 to 90 minutes in length. This simple out-patient procedure only requires that you have a ride home as you won’t be allowed to drive yourself. The recovery time following cross-linking may vary from individual to individual. But generally, it takes a week to recover.
