Riboflavin Family

CE-marked riboflavin formulations

Our scientifically developed family of CE marked riboflavin formulations—VibeX Xtra, VibeX Rapid, ParaCel, MedioCROSS® TE, MedioCROSS® M, MedioCROSS® D, and MedioCROSS® H—ensure rapid diffusion in individual, sterile syringes for all your cross-linking needs.

We are proud to offer multiple CE-marked riboflavin formulations, which have set the standard to produce the highest quality riboflavin since the introduction of corneal cross-linking.

Glaukos riboflavin formulations have been used in hundreds of thousands of treatments around the world.

Trans-epithelial treatment of keratoconus and corneal ectasia

Intra-stromal applications in conjunction with LASIK (Lasik Xtra®)

Riboflavin

VibeX Rapid

CE-marked VibeX Rapid riboflavin is formulated to improve diffusion rates while decreasing corneal thinning. VibeX Rapid has a diffusion rate of twice that of standard riboflavin and is topically applied to the cornea after epithelium removal. UVA light from the KXL® system is then applied for cross-linking.

Technical Information

Formulation:

0.1% Riboflavin, Saline, HPMC

Procedure:

Cross-linking for keratoconus &
corneal ectasia

Application:

Epithelium-off

Riboflavin

VibeX Xtra

CE-marked VibeX Xtra riboflavin is formulated specifically for use during the Lasik Xtra® procedure. VibeX Xtra is applied directly to the stromal bed prior to replacing the flap following excimer laser ablation. Formulated in an isotonic solution, VibeX Xtra diffuses quickly to minimize flap exposure time and deliver the appropriate concentration of riboflavin for cross-linking. Once the flap has been repositioned over the cornea, UVA light from the KXL® system is applied to activate VibeX Xtra to restore biomechanical integrity to the cornea.

Technical Information

Formulation:

0.22% Riboflavin, Saline, Isotonic

Procedure:

Lasik Xtra

Application:

Stromal Bed

Riboflavin

ParaCel

CE-marked ParaCel is a 2-step trans-epithelial riboflavin specifically formulated for direct application on the intact epithelium. ParaCel’s higher concentration of riboflavin and proprietary formulation allows for fast penetration and diffusion into the corneal stroma.

Intact epithelium diminishes the effects of cross-linking when low-powered UVA devices are used. The KXL® system offers 45 mW/cm2 of power for effective cross-linking through the intact epithelium using ParaCel.

Technical Information

Formulation:

0.25% Riboflavin, HPMC, BAC

Procedure:

Cross-linking for keratoconus &
corneal ectasia

Application:

Epithelium-on

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.
