What is Corneal Cross-Linking (CXL)?
CXL is an add-on procedure that is incorporated into your Safe Sight TransPRK procedure which helps to strengthen your cornea and lock-in the longevity of your post Safe Sight TransPRK vision. During laser vision correction procedures, the excimer laser reshapes the cornea by removing corneal tissue in order to correct refractive power. As such, thin and weakened corneas may be at risk of bulging forwards, resulting in a condition called Cornea Ectasia. CXL helps to reduce the risk of Cornea Ectasia.
At Clearvision, we use the Avedro KXL® System, designed by a team of scientists and engineers that delivers good results and is specially customised for integration with Safe Sight TransPRK procedures.
