The KXL II system, used to perform photorefractive intrastromal cross-linking, received regulatory approval in Canada, according to a press release from Avedro.

The cross-linking procedure, called PiXL, has the potential to deliver nonsurgical correction of myopia as well as improve cataract surgery outcomes, according to the release.

The device is designed to deliver specific light patterns to the cornea based on a patient’s topographic data.

The KXL II device previously received the CE mark in the European Union. Avedro products are not yet available for sale in the U.S., according to the release.
