XENIA is additive
Unlike many other corneal procedures that are subtractive (taking away material from the corneal), XENIA provides the patient with additional natural collagen material to re-shape, thicken and strengthen the cornea.
XENIA is reversible
It can always be removed from the patient cornea, essentially restoring the situation from before the implantation.
XENIA is exchangeable
In some cases, the patient’s vision or corneal situation changes over time. In such a case, the XENIA implant can be exchanged with another XENIA implant that is better aligned with the new corneal or visual situation of the patient.
XENIA is custom
Unlike the vast majority of ophthalmic implants (e.g. intra-ocular lenses – IOLs) that are mass-manufactured to pre-defined standards, the XENIA implant is custom-made for each and every patient. It can be tailored individually to be perfectly aligned for the individual need of the individual patient.
