C3R Surgery In Davanagere​

Corneal collagen crosslinking (CCL) is a treatment for corneal dystrophy in which the surface layer of the cornea is damaged and becomes thin and brittle. CCL is performed using riboflavin, which reacts with the corneal collagen to form a crosslink. This crosslink strengthens the cornea and reduces its ability to degenerate.

Riboflavin can be administered as an eye drop, which is how it is typically used in CCL. Side effects are usually minimal, but may include a feeling of warmth or flushing in the eyes, sensitivity to light, or blurred vision.

Procedure of C3R Eye Surgery

C3r surgery

In order for the riboflavin to crosslink the corneal collagen, it must first be absorbed into the eye. To do this, the doctor will usually prescribe an oral medication called a proton pump inhibitor (PPI). This medication blocks the absorption of dietary sugars, including riboflavin, which helps to increase its chance of being absorbed into the eye.

After taking the PPI for a few days, the doctor will then perform the crosslinking procedure. During this procedure, a special light is used to heat up and fuse the corneal collagen together. The light also causes minor damage to the surface of the eye, which helps to stimulate healing.

The crosslinking procedure can take anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour, and most patients are able to go back to their regular activities within a few days. There are no long-term side effects associated with this surgery, but some people may experience mild discomfort after undergoing it.
