Corneal Cross-Linking Treatment

Corneal cross-linking is a minimally invasive treatment to treat progressive keratoconus (and, sometimes, other conditions that cause a similar weakening of the cornea). The corneal cross-linking treatment strengthens and stabilizes the cornea through the creation of new links between collagen fibres. This two-stage treatment is followed directly by a regulated exposure to ultraviolet light for specialized riboflavin (Vitamin B) drops on the surface of the eye.

Corneal Cross-Linking Treatment at KABERA

Corneal cross-linking takes about 2 hours to prepare, therapy and recuperate properly in an office environment. The best part about this is that the process is minimally invasive using simply eye drops, ultraviolet light and a painless bubbling off the corneal surface cells. This technology is a game-changer and our patients are proud to get it!

Epithelium-off cross-linking

In this procedure, the thin outer layer (epithelium) of the cornea is removed to allow the liquid riboflavin to more easily penetrate the deeper corneal tissue.

Epithelium-on cross-linking

In this procedure (also called transepithelial cross-linking), the protective corneal epithelium is left intact, making it a less invasive procedure than cross-linking with epithelium removal.
