Lasik Xtra is a procedure trademarked by Avedro. Lasik Xtra is a treatment that combines a LASIK procedure with a subsequent CXL treatment.
The claimed benefit of Lasik Xtra is that it strengthens the cornea, preventing the development of ectasia. Presently, LASIK MD clinics are equipped with the necessary technology to perform this type of procedure, but have chosen not to offer Lasik Xtra until the benefits are further proven. In the unlikely event that a LASIK MD patient develops ectasia, we are able to stop the progression of the condition with a CXL treatment.
