Keratoconus eye disease has troubled a lot of kids and adults. We are proud to present tnew keratoconus treatment options. These surgical interventions are to halt the progress of keratoconus eye disease, which can spread like wildfire. The newest procedures are to avoid the dreaded corneal transplant.
Rest assured, we only provide FDA APPROVED TECHNOLOGY.Call now 213-568-0076
Latest to get approved by FDA is the Avedro cornea cross linking with riboflavin ( KXL/Photrexa). This epi off classical cornea collagen cross linking is based on the original Dresden protocol. Safety and efficacy has been documented for this system.
CCCR or cornea collagen cross linking with riboflavin is indicated for progressive keratoconus eye disease or post lasik ectasia. It stiffens the cornea increasing its ability to resist the pressure within the eye.
Evidence based studies have led to certain conclusions listed below. Links are provided to understand the peer reviewed literature.
These plastic ring segments have to be inserted at a precise depth and axis. The accuracy is increased when a femtosecond laser is used to carve the channels. Many studies have documented the precision of the femtosecond laser channels over the older cheaper mechanical or prolate method. A keratoconus surgeon has to anlayze the vision, refraction, pachymetry distribution and color topography to come up with a treatment plan. The keratoocnus expert can decide the number of impants (1 or 2), the size and the position of the corneal segments.
I am so glad I underwent the cornea cross linking procedure. The doc made it so simple. I was even able to listen to my fave music while we crushed Keratoconus eye disease with new treatment.
We will work with your insurance company to get you pre approved. We need to perform a detailed exam including a depth map of your cornea and colored shape map. All this data is transmitted through special channels to get a pre certification done. It is our understanding only FDA approved new keratoconus treatment technology can be authorized by the insurance companies. Study participants cannot be covered by insurance.
New cutting edge technologies combined together can do wonders for visual improvement. A soft biocompatible
lens inserted over the natural lens can improve high myopia. This can make the difference in seeing and getting back to work.
