Intended Use

The KXL® System is intended for illuminating the cornea during corneal cross-linking procedures stabilizing cornea which have been weakened by disease or by refractive surgery.

Safety Information

The KXL® System is contraindicated where the corneal thickness, with epithelium, is less than < 375 microns, in corneal melting disorders, aphakic patients, pseudophakic patients without UV blocking lens implanted, pregnant and nursing women, and children. Possible risks may include corneal haze, delayed epithelial healing, corneal edema, stromal scarring, keratitis by infection and sterile infiltrates. For full information consult the directions for use.
