Collagen Cross-Linking for Keratoconus Treatment Now Available

September 28, 2016

 

Corneal cross-linking (CXL) is an in-office eye procedure that strengthens the cornea if it's been weakened by keratoconus, other corneal disease, or (rarely) a complication of LASIK surgery. 

 

The minimally invasive CXL procedure involves applying liquid riboflavin (vitamin B2) to the surface of the eye, followed by treatment with a controlled application of ultraviolet light, to eliminate corneal ectasia.

 

It was recently approved for clinical use for progressive keratoconus.

 

Corneal crosslinking is most effective if it can be performed before the cornea has become too irregular in shape or there is significant vision loss from keratoconus or other causes of corneal ectasia. If applied early, CXL typically will stabilize or even improve the shape of the cornea, resulting in better visual acuity and an improved ability to wear contact lenses.

 

Please contact our office if you would like more information or to be screened as a candidate for collagen cross linking.
