RIBOFAST® comes in a kit containing a syringe filled with 1,5 ml of solution and a cannula needle for application.
RIBOFAST® is used in Corneal Cross-linking procedures, to treat:
- Corneal Ectasias
- Post PRK/LASIK/RK ectasias
- Irregular astigmatism
- Pellucid Marginal Degeneration
- Infectious Keratitis
RIBOFAST® should be used with quantity, time and specifications of the selected CXL protocol.
Riboflavin toxicity was not detected. If used excessively, a minimum amount will accumulate in tissues, while the remaining will be briefly expelled. There were no adverse event reports with riboflavin use. Riboflavin can induce urine color change, if taken in large amount: this shouldn’t be considered a problem, since riboflavin does not cause adverse events.
RIBOFAST® shouldn’t be used in cases of proven intolerance or hypersensibility to its components. Newborns treated for hyperbilirubinaemia could be sensitive to a riboflavin excess. RIBOFAST® can be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding.
RIBOFAST® must be conserved away from direct sunlight, at a temperature not over 30°C
