Corneal Cross Linking CSO Vega
A new, promising, therapeutic approach to eliminate keratoconus condition is corneal collagen cross linking with riboflavin (B12) and ultraviolet (UVA) radiation (CXL technique). Using this method, new bonds between corneal collagen fibers are created, resulting in the corneal stiffness stabilization. Continuous corneal thinning is detained and keratoplasty (corneal transplantation) option is prevented.
Aktis ophthalmological center (eye laser center) features latest generation CSO Vega cross linking ultraviolet radiation transmission device for keratoconus treatment of keratoconus. Some of the technical characteristics that make the system unique are the following: screen timer for procedure tracking, ‘intelligent’ software, special foot pedal for easy operation, fixation point for patient’s comfort during treatment, integrated camera for real-time focus and calibration, innovative optical system for radiation beam uniformity (corneal surface). The device is also equipped with small wheels for easy maneuvers in surgical rooms.
