What is Corneal Collagen Crosslinking


Hello friends!!! Welcome to my channel
‘KeratoconusHub TV’ In this video you will get an idea about what
is Corneal Collagen Cross-linking and how it works for keratoconus. To understand the procedure of Crosslinking,
you can watch my video based on procedure of CXL on my channel. So, What is Corneal Collagen Cross-linking? As I’ve already mentioned that Corneal Collagen
Cross-linking (CXL) is a surgical procedure to slow-down or to halt the progression and
even to reverse the keratoconus to some extent in rare cases. This improvement happens due to flattening
of cornea. Thus cross-linking has emerged as a wonderful
technique to help keratoconus patients. Now it is possible to reduce the number of
corneal transplants in most of the cases. If your keratoconus is progressive in nature
then you should not postpone the decision to have C3R. Cross linking surgery procedure involves Riboflavin,
which is nothing but the Vitamin B2 and UltraViolet-A (UV-A, 365 nm) light. This helps in strengthening of the corneal
structure with the formation of new bonds in collagen strands. It has been found that C3R can strengthen
the corneal structure by up to 300%. !!!
