Corneal Collagen Cross-Linking

Corneal collagen cross-linking is a treatment for keratoconus eye condition, or progressive thinning of weak corneas. It improves biomechanical stability for thin corneas. It is usually done in combination with LASIK. The procedure involves applying riboflavin to the eye, and then cross-linked (or activated) with UV-A light for approximately 20 minutes.This is used as an alternative to corneal transplant surgery.
