    CA-CXL expands candidates to eyes with thin corneas

    Contact lens-assisted accelerated technique offers safe, efficient, and effective treatment


    Chennai, IndiaContact lens-assisted corneal crosslinking (CA-CXL) is a novel technique that allows eyes with thin corneas to undergo epi-off CXL, according to Soosan Jacob, MD.

    Outcomes so far from a series of 90 eyes support the efficacy and safety of the simple and efficient procedure as an intervention for progressive keratectasia.

    As reported in a published paper [Jacob S, et al. J Refract Surg. 2014;30:366-372] analyzing data from a consecutive cohort of 14 eyes, the average depth of the stromal demarcation line was 252.9 µm (range 208 to 260 µm), while topographic evaluation showed absence of keratometric steepening during a mean follow-up of 6.1 months.

    In addition, there was no change in average endothelial cell density, the corneas remained clear, and there were no other complications.
