  • Corneal collagen cross-linking aims to stabilize the cornea and stop the progression of irregular corneal changes known as ectasia.
  • Corneal ectasia manifests in several ways including corneal thinning, steepening of the front and back corneal curvatures and irregular astigmatism.  Ectasia is commonly caused by the progressive disorder known as keratoconus.
  • Corneal collagen cross-linking works by using riboflavin eye drops and UV light to strengthen the collagen structure of the cornea.
