The Effect of Sodium Iodide on Stromal Loading, Distribution and Degradation of Riboflavin in a Rabbit Model of Transepithelial Corneal Crosslinking


Roy Rubinfeld, MD, MA; Glenwood Gum, PhD; Jonathan Talamo, MD; and Edward C. Parsons, PhD

Conclusion: The addition of [a unique, proprietary, patented] Nal sodium iodide simple salt to riboflavin solution is associated with increased riboflavin concentration in corneal stroma. [NaI also limits] riboflavin photodegradation [breakdown] during UVA exposure.
