Keratoconus Treatment

CXL (Corneal Collagen Cross-Linking) is a new method of treatment of Keratoconus and the only method to stop the progression

The goal of therapy is to strengthen the interconnection of corneal collagen fibers, thus stabilizes the cornea, stop thinning, ballooning (ectasia) and stop the progression of keratoconus’s. The method combines ultraviolet rays and vitamin B2 (riboflavin).

This method can be realized with or without corneal epithelium craping, afterwards riboflavin in form of drops in every 2 minutes interval during 15 minutes until it passes in anterior chamber (camera anterior) and then UVX-ray is applied. 90% of these UVX-rays will be absorbed in the cornea and there isn’t any risk for lens or retina.
