Greetings from Advanced Eye Hospital!
CCL / C3R/ CXL or Corneal Collagen
Cross Linking is a technique in which the bonds in your cornea are
strengthened. Riboflavin, a type of Vitamin B2 is first applied followed by
treatment with Ultraviolet A Light.
While conventional collagen cross
linking required that one’s cornea be thicker than 400 microns, it is not true
Today, we have a newer technique
called KXL, wherein the time is drastically reduced from an hour to just about
3 minutes! Also, individuals whose corneas are thinner than 400 microns can now
be considered for this procedure using this new technology.
If you suffer from Keratoconus and
wish to ascertain whether you are a suitable candidate for this procedure, do
drop in to Advanced Eye Hospital, Navi Mumbai for a comprehensive eye check by
our Cornea Surgeon.
