Avedro KXL: The most advanced tecnology for Crosslinking Surgery 3/21/2017

Avedro’s Crosslinking Technology

 

CODET Vision Institute is always at the forefront of utilizing the latest ophthalmic technology to treat patients. Keratoconus is a condition in which the cornea (the clear part in front of the eye) becomes abnormally thin and protrudes forward. Keratoconus literally means a cone-shaped cornea.

People with early Keratoconus experience slightly blurred vision, for which the doctor will prescribe eyeglasses to read or drive, for example. As the disease progresses, however, visual acuity deteriorates at all distance.

Cases of Keratoconus that are not severe are treated successfully with contact lenses especially designed for the condition. When treatment isn't sufficient with contact lenses, however, surgery must be considered, with a corneal transplant being the last resort.

At CODET Vision Institute, we have available one of the most innovative therapeutic options to slow or stop the progression of Keratoconus, and delay the need for a cornea transplant - this being Crosslinking. This procedure was recently approved by the FDA (April 2016) for the treatment of Keratoconus and Ectasia in the United States. At CODET Vision Institute, we have many more years of experience performing the technique with excellent outcomes.


CODET has been performing Crosslinking since 2010, most recently using the Avedro KXL technology, one of the most advanced technologies for Crosslinking. With many alternatives technologies, the procedure may last up to 1 hour, however, with the Avedro KXL procedure, times are reduced by up to 20 minutes per procedure, yielding amazing results for patients and significantly reducing the probability of requiring corneal transplantation.
