C3R Surgery In Aligarh​

Corneal collagen crosslinking (CCL) is a common surgical procedure used to improve the appearance of the eye. CCL uses riboflavin (vitamin B2) to create a crosslinked network of corneal collagen fibers. The cross-linking process results in a more elastic and durable cornea.

There are several potential benefits of CCL. First, it can improve the overall appearance of the eye by tightening and smoothing the skin over the surface of the eye. Second, crosslinking may improve the visibility of close objects by creating a stronger and more elastic cornea. Third, crosslinking may also reduce the risk of future eye diseases by strengthening the cornea’s structural proteins.

If you are interested in learning more about CCL or if you are considering this treatment as an option for your eyes, please contact our office in Aligarh. We would be happy to discuss your options with you and answer any questions that you may have.

Procedure of C3R Eye Surgery

C3r surgery

Corneal collagen crosslinking (CCL) is a procedure that uses riboflavin (vitamin B2) to cross-link the corneal collagen. This helps to improve the strength and elasticity of the cornea, which can reduce the chances of future eye diseases. CCL is typically used to treat keratoconus, a condition in which the cornea becomes abnormally thin and steep. It is also used to treat other conditions that affect the cornea, such as progressive myopia and astigmatism. The procedure is done in a hospital under general anesthesia. 

First, the eye must be cleaned and dried. Then, the doctor will insert a small needle through the lower lid into the eye. This needle is used to inject riboflavin under pressure into the center of the lens. Next, the doctor will remove the needle and gently pull on the eyelid to close the eye. The riboflavin will continue to work for about an hour, crosslinking the corneal collagen. After one hour has passed, the patient will be allowed to return home with minimal discomfort. There may be some temporary flu-like symptoms, but these should subside within a few days.

Happy Patients from Aligarh after C3R Surgery

Rishi Sachdeva

“I had been dealing with constant blurred vision for the last 8 years, it was difficult to go out, work or even see if I was standing in front of a car. My doctor suggested that I came in for riboflavin crosslinking surgery and I have never regretted that decision. It has given me my life back and it is permanent.”

– Rishi (Aligarh)
