Private eye surgery: corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL) to treat keratoconus and prevent further vision loss

Minimal waiting times and exceptional eye care at Midland Eye

What is Keratoconus?
Keratoconus is a degenerative non-inflammatory disease of the cornea (the transparent dome in front of the eye). It causes the cornea to gradually get thinner and change shape. Since the cornea is the primary focusing lens of the eye, any distortions in it lead to a distorted image projected onto the retina, which results in reduced vision.

As the disease progresses, your vision to becomes more blurred and distorted. Patients with keratoconus are usually very short-sighted and have severe astigmatism.

Keratoconus usually appears around puberty and progresses over the years.It affects about 1 in 1,750 people, equally males and females, and occurs in all ethnic groups.

What is corneal collagen cross-linking with riboflavin (vitamin B2) and ultraviolet light, and why should I have it?

Riboflavin/ultraviolet corneal collagen cross-linkage (CXL) is a treatment that stabilises and strengthens the cornea, and stops the progression of keratoconus. Clinical studies have shown that the treatment stops the progression of keratoconus in about 98% of patients and improves the overall corneal shape in the majority of patients. Your doctor may recommend that you have CXL with riboflavin and ultraviolet light because your keratoconus appears to be progressing and he/she believes you will benefit from the treatment.
