PiXL Vision Correction Procedure
PiXL™ is a Health Canada approved, non-surgical vision correction procedure for low prescriptions. For many years, those with mild nearsightedness or farsightedness were left without a treatment option beyond glasses or contacts, which interrupt daily life and can also be costly over time. Clearview Vision Institute is passionate about offering the best possible vision care to everyone; even mild vision problems can disrupt your life and therefore be improved with more advanced technology, which we are proud to offer.
This groundbreaking technology is the latest evolution in the field of refractive surgery. PiXL™ biomechanically strengthens the cornea and improves patient vision in a simple two-step procedure that is highly safe and without risks. Although the technology is already available in Europe, Australia and Asia, Clearview Vision Institute is the first to introduce it to Canada.
Why Choose PiXL?
Patients who are ineligible for laser vision correction, feel uncomfortable undergoing surgery, or whose prescription is mild enough that they feel laser vision correction isn’t right for them can now benefit from improved vision. PiXL improves your vision and reduces your dependency on the high cost of glasses and contacts. PiXL will simplify your life in many ways.
How PiXL Works
PiXL™ gently reshapes and strengthens the cornea without surgery using a combination of eye drops and light. This makes the procedure completely non-invasive. The entire procedure is completed in 20 or 30 minutes. The steps are detailed as follows below:
- We apply riboflavin (vitamin B2) eye drops to the cornea. Riboflavin is a naturally occurring, non-toxic photosensitizer.
- We shine ultraviolet A (UVA) light on the riboflavin-soaked cornea, in equal or less exposure to that of summer sunlight.
- The UVA light strengthens and reshapes the cornea by cross-linking corneal collagen fibres, improving your vision.
