Cross Linking

The technique uses UV light and a photosensitiser to strengthen collagen bonds or cross links. These are the natural anchors in the cornea that prevent it from bulging out. It is performed in the consulting rooms and takes less than one hour. The patient is able to go home the same day

Cross linking is not a cure for Keratoconus, it is a treatment that stabilises the deterioration of the cornea and enables some patients to improve their vision.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. The information provided here is for general educational purposes only.
