3 LASIK XTRA 1. A new concept: KXL at the time of a LASIK surgery. 2. There is no doubt any surgery involving the creation of a flap will decrease the strength of the cornea. 3. Microkeratomes decrease the corneal strenghth two times more than Femtosecond flaps (own published studies). 4. If the addition of KXL does not change the final result: WHY NOT? 1.

4 LASIK XTRA 1. Very short procedure: one minute soaking time and one minute fifteen seconds UV. 2. Does not change the normal LASIK procedure itself. 3. Same ablation, same handling of the flap. 4. In my own cases we did not detect any change in the refractive result. 5. No complications added at all to the normal regular procedure of LASIK. 1.

5 INCORPORATING LASIK XTRA INTO STANDARD LASIK SURGERY 1.Following excimer laser ablation in the flap bed 2.The flap is repositioned and the cornea is then exposed to 30mW/cm 2 UVA for 2 minutes

6 LASIK XTRA ADVANTAGES 1. Can be carried out with Intralase or with Microkeratome flap. 2. Do not change the regular procedure. 3. Easy and simple for Doctor and Patient. 4. Do not change the final result of the ablation. 5. Can also be used regardless of the thickness of the flap, depth of ablation or type of Excimer Laser. 1. Can be carried out with Intralase or with Microkeratome flap. 2. Do not change the regular procedure. 3. Easy and simple for Doctor and Patient. 4. Do not change the final result of the ablation. 5. Can also be used regardless of the thickness of the flap, depth of ablation or type of Excimer Laser.

7 LASIK XTRA DISADVANTAGES 1. Slows down the procedure for a couple of minutes. 2. Increases the cost. 1. Slows down the procedure for a couple of minutes. 2. Increases the cost.

8 LASIK XTRA INDICATIONS STRONG CONSIDERATIONS 1. ABSOLUTELY CONTRAINDICATED IN THE PRESENCE OF ECTASIA. 2. ABSOLUTELY NOT INDICATED WHEN DEVELOPMENT OF ECASIA IS WARRANTED. 3. In such a case I prefer Surface Ablation plus Accelerated Cross Linking. 1. ABSOLUTELY CONTRAINDICATED IN THE PRESENCE OF ECTASIA. 2.

9 LASIK XTRA INDICATIONS 1. Young patients for Lasik (under 24 years of age). 2. Patients with severe ocular allergies, due to the risk of heavy rubbing. 3. Completely normal corneas, with no one sign of Keratoconus, but family history. 4. Thin corneas with complete normal preoperative evaluation (Risk of ectasia has been ruled out). 5. High myopes (large resections) 1. Young patients for Lasik (under 24 years of age). 2. Patients with severe ocular allergies, due to the risk of heavy rubbing. 3. Completely normal corneas, with no one sign of Keratoconus, but family history. 4. Thin corneas with complete normal preoperative evaluation (Risk of ectasia has been ruled out). 5. High myopes (large resections)

10 LASIK XTRA INDICATIONS 6. Retreatments, particularly if the thickness of the flap is not known. 7. Unexpected thick flap. 8. Irregular flaps with different thickness. 9. FINALLY IN ALL LASIK CASES: IF IT DOES NOT CHANGE THE RESULT WHY NOT??? 6. Retreatments, particularly if the thickness of the flap is not known. 7. Unexpected thick flap. 8.

11 LASIK XTRA: Predictable Visual Outcomes Retrospective Comparison of 66 Lasik eyes to 42 LASIK eyes treated for myopia  Mean age: in the Lasik Xtra cohort and in the LASIK cohort  Mean preoperative MRSE was D (Lasik Xtra), and D (LASIK).  No adjustment was made to the excimer laser treatment nomogram to account for aCXL, which was performed immediately following stromal ablation Retrospective Comparison of 66 Lasik eyes to 42 LASIK eyes treated for myopia  Mean age: in the Lasik Xtra cohort and in the LASIK cohort  Mean preoperative MRSE was D (Lasik Xtra), and D (LASIK).  No adjustment was made to the excimer laser treatment nomogram to account for aCXL, which was performed immediately following stromal ablation

12 LASIK XTRA: Predictable Visual Outcomes Retrospective Comparison of 66 Lasik eyes to 42 LASIK eyes treated for myopia  Mean UCVA at 1 Day Post-Op 20/21 Lasik Xtra vs 20/20 LASIK  Mean UCVA at 1 Week Post-Op 20/20 Lasik Xtra vs 20/20 LASIK  Mean UCVA at 1 Month Post-Op 20/18 Lasik Xtra vs 20/20 LASIK Retrospective Comparison of 66 Lasik eyes to 42 LASIK eyes treated for myopia  Mean UCVA at 1 Day Post-Op 20/21 Lasik Xtra vs 20/20 LASIK  Mean UCVA at 1 Week Post-Op 20/20 Lasik Xtra vs 20/20 LASIK  Mean UCVA at 1 Month Post-Op 20/18 Lasik Xtra vs 20/20 LASIK

13 LASIK XTRA: Predictable Visual Outcomes Retrospective Comparison of 66 Lasik eyes to 42 LASIK eyes treated for myopia  Mean MRSE at 1 Week Post-Op Lasik Xtra vs LASIK  Mean MRSE at 1 Month Post-Op Lasik Xtra vs LASIK Retrospective Comparison of 66 Lasik eyes to 42 LASIK eyes treated for myopia  Mean MRSE at 1 Week Post-Op Lasik Xtra vs LASIK  Mean MRSE at 1 Month Post-Op Lasik Xtra vs LASIK

14 LASIK XTRA: Predictable Visual Outcomes UCVA 1 Day Post Operative

15 LASIK XTRA: Predictable Visual Outcomes UCVA 1 Month Post Operative

16 LASIK XTRA EXAMPLE # 1 PREOPERATIVE POSTOPERATIVE

17 LASIK XTRA EXAMPLE # 2 PREOPERATIVE POSTOPERATIVE

18 LASIK XTRA EXAMPLE # 2 PREOPERATIVE POSTOPERATIVE

19 CONCLUSION LASIK XTRA  No need to change nomogram for LASIK procedures (Femto or microkeratome).  No change in the final results when compared to same procedures without KXL.  No haze or loss of lines of BCVA.  Time for surgery is increased only few more minutes.  Follow up only one year and one eye retreatment in 100 eyes.  Lifting the flap was very easy (surgeon was not aware of the KXL at the time of relifting).  No need to change nomogram for LASIK procedures (Femto or microkeratome).  No change in the final results when compared to same procedures without KXL.  No haze or loss of lines of BCVA.  Time for surgery is increased only few more minutes.  Follow up only one year and one eye retreatment in 100 eyes.  Lifting the flap was very easy (surgeon was not aware of the KXL at the time of relifting).
