Keratoconus – Cornea Cross-Linking

Keratoconus is a condition that causes the Cornea to distort from the its normal state therefore causing a host of visual issues.  Corneal Cross-Linking is an FDA approved procedure for stopping Keratoconus.

Ideally, the patient will opt to have surgery for this condition earlier rather than later because continued deterioration of cornea can become permanent.  The procedure involves applying a riboflavin solution along with UV light pulses to strengthen the Cornea against further deterioration.

Depending upon the progression of the disease, surgeons sometimes opt to remove the outer layer of the Cornea to aid I faster absorption in the lower layers where the corrections will occur.

The great news is 99% of patients who have this procedure before permanent damage will have their eyes stabilize, and in some cases improve.
