Corneal Cross-Linking (CXL)

Are you experiencing symptoms of keratoconus or corneal ectasia? Corneal Cross-Linking (CXL) is the only recognized treatment to halt their progression. While CXL doesn’t revert the cornea to its original shape, it can stabilize or improve its condition. Early treatment with CXL is essential to prevent further deterioration and vision loss.

Can someone with keratoconus undergo vision correction procedures?

Options for enhancing vision encompass topography-guided PRK or ICL treatments, customized to your specific requirements. Topography-guided PRK accurately maps the cornea for detailed reshaping to improve vision, while individuals with higher prescriptions might find ICLs or RLE more beneficial. Given the variability of keratoconus, contact lenses might be preferable for some. An extensive assessment with Dr. Kouchouk is essential to identify the best approach for vision correction.

What is the mechanism behind CXL?

Cross-Linking fortifies the cornea to stop keratoconus from advancing. It involves saturating the cornea with specific eye drops, which are then activated by UV light, creating strong links among the corneal molecules. These “cross-links” significantly reinforce the cornea’s structure, effectively decelerating the progression of keratoconus and potentially reversing some of the damage.
