- Advancements in corneal cross-linking science have led to faster treatments and precise UVA dose delivery, expanding the applications of cross-linking to refractive surgery. This seminar will present an overview of the science and technology behind accelerated corneal cross-linking. Special emphasis will be placed on Lasik Xtra®, corneal strengthening during the LASIK procedure, and Photorefractive Intrastromal Cross-Linking (PiXLTM), the correction of refractive error with cross-linkingalone through the topography guided application of customizable, zone-specific treatment patterns. Clinical outcomes of Lasik Xtra and PiXL will be presented by surgeons, who will also share advice for incorporating corneal cross-linking into refractive practice.
