Corneal Cross Linking in keratoconus.
Corneal cross linking (CCL) is a new method of treatment for keratoconus (a corneal disease) at an early stage with UV light and vitamin B2.
This involves removing the epithelium, the most superficial layer of the cornea. Then liquid Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) is applied to the cornea followed by the application of UV light to the eye. The combination of ultraviolet light and vitamin B2 cause fibres within the cornea to cross-link.
This method can halt the spread of keratoconus which, over time, might otherwise progress even further.
