Keratoconus Surgery: Exploring the CREATE+CXL Protocol

Keratoconus Surgery: Exploring the CREATE+CXL Protocol

Keratoconus, a condition where the cornea transforms into a cone shape, significantly affects vision, leading to a search for effective treatment.

Traditional treatments, including the use of rigid gas permeable and scleral contact lenses, have offered some relief, but not without challenges. Corneal transplant surgery, while beneficial for some, carries the risk of complications and doesn’t always halt the progression of the disease.

Enter the CREATE+CXL Protocol, a groundbreaking keratoconus surgery that combines topographic guided ablation with corneal collagen cross-linking. This innovative approach not only stops the progression but also corrects corneal unevenness, providing a substantial improvement in vision.

What is Keratoconus

Before delving into the cutting-edge solutions offered by the CREATE+CXL Protocol, it’s essential to understand what keratoconus is and how it impacts those it affects. Keratoconus is an eye disorder that results in the progressive thinning and bulging of the cornea, the clear, dome-shaped surface that covers the front of the eye. This bulging transforms the cornea into a cone-like shape, distorting vision by altering the way light enters the eye.

Keratoconus typically manifests in the teenage years or early twenties and can progress at varying rates. Vision becomes increasingly blurred and distorted, making everyday tasks challenging. This condition is characterized by symptoms such as increased light sensitivity, glare, and halos around lights, significantly diminishing the quality of life for those affected.

Vision correction methods like rigid gas permeable contact lenses or scleral lenses have traditionally managed keratoconus, reshaping the cornea to improve vision.

For more advanced cases of keratoconus or when other methods fail to provide sufficient vision correction, doctors often consider corneal transplant surgery. However, these approaches, while effective to an extent, have their limitations and risks, highlighting the need for innovative treatment options.

Why the CREATE+CXL Protocol?

  • Topographic Guided Ablation: Utilizes detailed corneal maps to accurately correct unevenness, significantly enhancing vision correction.
  • Corneal Cross-Linking: Strengthens the cornea by increasing collagen fibers’ bonds, effectively stopping the disease’s progression.
  • Advanced Technology: Targets previously unseen corneal issues using UV light, improving treatment outcomes.

This protocol marks a significant advancement in keratoconus treatment, offering a permanent solution that preserves the natural cornea. It’s an especially valuable option for those at risk of undergoing corneal transplant surgery, presenting a less invasive and more sustainable alternative.

FAQs about Keratoconus Surgery and the CREATE+CXL Protocol

How does keratoconus affect vision?

As keratoconus progresses, it can lead to blurred vision, increased sensitivity to light, glare, and the appearance of halos around lights, making daily tasks more challenging.

What are traditional treatments for keratoconus?

Glasses, soft contact lenses, rigid gas permeable (RGP) contact lenses, or scleral lenses have traditionally managed keratoconus to improve vision. In more advanced stages, doctors may consider corneal transplant surgery.

Is the CREATE+CXL Protocol a permanent solution?

Yes, the CREATE+CXL Protocol aims to provide a permanent solution that preserves the patient’s natural cornea, setting it apart from traditional methods that might need ongoing adjustments or could result in complications.
