For various keratoconus
& infectious keratitis settings.

Thickness-adjusted Profile

Beam profile delivers
more energy in the corneal periphery.

Superior Battery Technology

EMAGine's C-eye device brings cross-linking technology to the slit lamp. Simple, efficient and safe from the novice to the expert user.


Perform CXL at the slit lamp. Or use the C-eye device just like any other CXL device: on a table mount, in your operating room.


Work in different places? Take the C-eye device wherever you go. Charge it via USB-C, with your smartphone charger, or your laptop.

Cost Effective

Reduces time and costs related to performing CXL

The C-eye device is CE marked for the following indications: keratoconus, ectasia after LASIK/PRK, pellucid marginal degeneration, infectious keratitis, sterile corneal melting, bullous keratopathy. 

The C-eye is not available for sale in the United States.

The C-eye device will revolutionize cross-linking

All 221,000 ophthalmologists are united by one piece of equipment: the slit lamp. It defines our profession. The C-eye technology provides all these ophthalmologists the ability to perform CXL at the slit lamp. Without an operating room. Simple. Efficient. Safe.

Cross-linking the modern way

The classic way – CXL in the lying position

Can I perform CXL in my office?

What about the infection risk?

Remember that every cross-linking procedure not only improves biomechanics, it also “disinfects” the cornea by directly killing all micro-organisms and by inhibiting cellular replication. This is why a cornea at the end of every CXL and PACK-CXL procedure is “sterile”. And by the way: office-based cataract surgery and office-based intravitreal injections have been performed in many thousands of cases without increased infection risk. 

Isn't time too long?

Irradiation time is not too long. Current modern protocols are integrated in the C-eye device and treat in as little as 10 minutes (CXL) and 4 minutes (PACK-CXL). See the published approach here.

Does CXL work in the sitting position?

We need 3 elements for successful cross-linking: UV light, oxygen and riboflavin. Both UV light and oxygen do not “care” whether the patient is laying down or sitting. As for riboflavin, published research shows that riboflavin concentration is stable in the upright position for up to 60 minutes - much longer than we need for a CXL treatment.

Is the patient comfortable?

Offer the patient the comfortable surgeon’s chair with the armrest and take the extra time to ensure that the patient is well-adjusted. Then, the patient is very comfortable.

What about the patient's fixation?

Fixation is no issue. Offer the patient the fixation target that most slit lamps offer (for retinal examination) and the patient will keep a very steady fixation, as you can see here.

Compatible Slit Lamps

The C-eye device fits to a number of Haag-Streit and Zeiss type slit lamps. Find here the complete list of compatible slit lamps

PACK-CXL as adjuvant therapy improves outcomes

“PACK-CXL is safe for use in bacterial keratitis cases. It also seems to add value in reducing healing time and improving final visual acuity while reducing the need for tectonic keratoplasty” noted the study authors.

What is the future of CXL?

Corneal cross-linking (CXL) has been used in the clinic for over 20 years now, but if you ever wanted to
