Corneal collagen crosslinking


Jun 16, 2020

Corneal cross-linking (CXL) is a treatment for patients with keratoconus which can prevent their condition getting worse. It is successful in more than 90% of cases. After treatment, you will still need to wear spectacles or contact lenses. Your eye will be sore for about one week after the procedure. Although vision is often hazy at first, most patients can resume contact lens wear and return to work after one week. As with all operations, there are risks: CXL is safe, but there is a small chance (about 1 in 30) of worse vision afterwards.

After ensuring that keratoconus has stopped progression, we can look into eye sight corrective options that range from glasses, contact lenses to intracorneal ring segments and intraocular lenses.
