Treatment for Progressive Keratoconus
Corneal cross-linking is a minimally invasive procedure to treat progressive keratoconus, a condition in which the cornea thins and bulges into a cone-like shape, causing vision distortion. iLink FDA approved epi-off cross-linking combines the use of prescription eye drops, Photrexa® Viscous, Photrexa®, and ultra-violet A (UVA) light from the KXL® system. This combination promotes the creation of new collagen bonds, reinforcing the cornea’s structure and preventing further deterioration.
What to Expect with Corneal Cross-Linking
The goal of the procedure is to slow or prevent further progression of the condition and preserve vision.
