Keratoconus, Cross-Linking and INTACS Treatment Advanced Vision Care:

Keratoconus , Cross-Linking and INTACS Treatment Advanced Vision Care

PowerPoint Presentation:

Cross-linking & INTACS are two highly effective, safe and painless treatments that can slow or even halt the progression of debilitating eye disease keratoconus . Because Advanced Vision Care’s surgical expertise extends beyond vision correction alone there really is no need to let a serious eye condition cast a shadow over your life.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Advanced Vision Care’s surgical expertise extends beyond vision correction alone; we offer two treatments that can slow or even halt the progression of keratoconus , a debilitating eye disease that affects one in 2,000.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Simple & effective alternative to corneal transplant Keratoconus causes the normally round-shaped cornea to become progressively thin and stretched to create a cone-like bulge that changes the refractive error and distorts vision.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Before the development of cross-linking and INTACS, keratoconus sufferers were looking at corneal transplant as the only way to prevent the progressive deterioration of their vision, but they can now transform their lives with these highly effective, safe and quick procedures.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Corneal collagen cross-linking aims to strengthen the thinning cornea and halt progression of the disease. This treatment can be combined with INTACS ( stromal inserts) to further flatten the corneal curvature. In certain cases, this may be followed up with surgery for implantable contact lenses (ICLs), should the refractive error remain high or complex.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Don’t let a serious eye condition cast a shadow over your life AVC we have the surgical expertise to provide you with a bespoke treatment plan that will give you a quality vision you thought was gone forever.

PowerPoint Presentation:

The Cross-Linking Procedure Collagen cross-linking is a non-surgical procedure which uses a UVA light system to activate riboflavin drops that strengthen the cornea. After placing the drops on the cornea the eye is exposed to UVA light for 30 minutes.

PowerPoint Presentation:

This enhances the bonds between the collagen fibrils to stiffen and strengthen the cornea. Following treatment a contact lens is inserted for 4-5 days to allow the eye to heal. Only one eye is treated at a time due to the intense nature of the treatment and the variation in healing time.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Non-surgical, safe and simple The procedure is extremely safe and straightforward and only needs to be carried out once to induce a permanent change. There are no incisions or stitches so recovery is swift. Contact lenses can still be used after treatment to correct any residual prescription.
