Corneal Cross Linking


Corneal Collagen Cross Linking is a relatively pain free procedure that is performed to slow or stop the progression of Keratoconus. Currently, there is not a cure for Keratoconus, however Cross Linking slows or halts the progression of the disease to prevent the cornea from becoming more irregular. We use special eye drops and an advanced form of UV light to strengthen your cornea.

Patients that are good candidates for Cross Linking:

  • Have been diagnosed with worsening Keratoconus or Ectasia
  • Do not have excessive corneal scarring
  • Do not have too thin, steep or flat corneas
  • Are not pregnant or breastfeeding

Based on study results of over a decade, it appears that the strengthening effects may be permanent. Cross Linking is FDA approved. The doctor will have a comprehensive discussion, at your consultation, of the risks, benefits and alternatives to the proposed treatment. The procedure normally takes 45 minutes and you will be in our center for approximately 2 hours on the day of your procedure.
