TECLens is developing a crosslinking technology that can not only treat keratoconus, but can also accurately correct vision errors in healthy eyes.
TECLens Quantitative Corneal Cross-linking (qCXL) can accurately reshape the cornea for:
- Recovery of reading distance vision in Presbyopia patients
- Control of Progressive Myopia in children
- Correction of adult vision errors such as Hyperopia and Low-order Myopia
Sitting directly and comfortably on the eye, our CXLens® device emits patterned ultraviolet light while using ultrasound to measure the real-time changes in corneal biomechanics. CXLens’ scleral lens tracks eye movement very accurately, allowing patients to move their eyes, head, or even close their eyes during treatment. The integrated ultrasound biomechanical monitor provides the closed-loop dosing necessary to accurately stiffen and reshape the cornea to a specific prescription.
TECLens has successfully tested the device in keratoconus patients and is currently planning the first refractive correction clinical studies of its comfortable one-time vision correction treatment.
