Avedro begins two new cross-linking trials in US
LASIK with cross-linking (LASIK Xtra) is a 2-minute procedure to investigate if cross-linking after LASIK reduces regression of refractive outcome in patients with hyperopia or hyperopic astigmatism, the release said.
Pulse accelerated cross-linking investigates pulsed UVA light to treat keratoconus, according to the release. Avedro’s KXL system allows for pulsed UVA light, which is important for higher-power accelerated cross-linking.
The KXL system is available internationally. No Avedro products have been approved for use in the U.S.
