Cross Linking Technique

  • Cross linking is a relatively new technique for the treatment of Keratoconus (which is a condition of corneal weakness).
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • The patient is able to go home the same day
