What Is Laser Light Transepithelial Crosslinking?

Light transepithelial crosslinking is an innovative and much improved version of corneal collagen crosslinking, the traditional treatment for those with keratoconus and ectasia, as well as other degenerative eye disorders. Light transepithelial crosslinking reduces the pain and healing time associated with traditional crosslinking, as well as the risk of infection due to the fact that the epithelial barrier is not broken. This procedure is also becoming increasingly popular due to the fact that it addresses the underlying cause of ectasia, which is corneal weakness. Laser light transepithelial crosslinking is safe and highly effective treatment option that strengthens the cornea. Decades worth of clinical studies have shown that this treatment is highly effective while also delivering permanent results.

Treating degenerative disorders of the cornea, such as keratoconus and keratectasia, this treatment provides clearer vision by strengthening the cornea while also improving its shape. Traditional crosslinking generally requires the removal of the surface layer, which then has to regenerate itself. This delays the healing process and increases the risk of complications. However, the novel laser light transepithelial Crosslinking procedure permits the surface layer to remain intact. This dramatically speeds up the recovery process and reduces the risk of complications. This exciting treatment will also help to prevent the necessity of a future corneal transplant.

How Laser Light Transepithelial Crosslinking Works

Laser light transepithelial crosslinking is non-invasive procedure that doesn’t involve incisions or stitches. The procedure simply requires a specialized “laser” delivery system, which precisely titrates the amount of energy delivered. Laser light transepithelial crosslinking is performed with state-of-the-art technology. This system reduces crosslinking time from 1 hour to 3 minutes or less.
