Drs. Bill Tullo and Clark Chang have lectured nationally on the topic of KCN and CXL.  We're so lucky that they are part of the TLC Clinical Services team.  They have been a fabulous resource for me as I prepare cases for surgery and manage post-surgery patients.  It's just nice to have people with such extended clinical backgrounds in refractive surgery co-mx to brainstorm with on cases!

At the CE, they discussed an update on CXL.  As you know, CXL was recently approved - finally! - this year for the treatment of KCN and then later for the treatment of post-LVC extasia.  Previously, Drs. Holzman and Solomon were co-investigators for the CXL study that was used to seek FDA approval for this treatment modality.  Now that it's approved, we have to seriously consider this surgical procedure for our KCN patients.

Be on the look out for more information on how to refer your patients in for CXL!!  - jw
