Corneal Cross-Linking

This treatment uses a combination of Riboflavin (Vitamin B) drops and ultra violet light that reacts with the collagen fibers in the cornea, strengthening them by creating more 'cross-linking' among them. The resulting increased strength of the cornea stabilises the progression of keratoconus.

This treatment does not provide a cure for keratoconus but in most cases prevents it from getting worse. Patients who previously had progressive keratoconus have now been treated and followed for up to five years without evidence of any further change in their condition.
