A particular problem in treating keratoconus by means of crosslinking is that the irregular cornea does not permit a homogenous treatment profile over the entirety of the treated area in conventional crosslinking. This is due to the fact that the amount of energy transferred to the cornea depends on its local steepness. The local steepness varies from point to point and patient to patient. The higher the local steepness, the lower the treatment effect. Unfortunately, the steepness of the cornea is highest in the most affected areas.
KERALUX Crosslinking solves this issue by ensuring a constant energy transfer to each point of the treated cornea - independent from the inter- and intraindividual variation of the cornea's local steepness.
The following video shows how KERALUX Crosslinking is performed and highlights its advantages over conventional crosslinking.
