C3R Surgery In Guwahati​

Corneal collagen crosslinking (CCL) is a new and emerging treatment for patients with keratoconus. CCL is a surgical procedure that uses riboflavin to crosslink the corneal collagen fibers. The procedure has been shown to be effective in reducing the severity of keratoconus and improving vision.

There are several factors that can influence the success of CCL. First, the patient’s baseline stability and degree of keratoconus must be accurately determined. Second, the correct riboflavin dose must be administered in order to achieve optimum results. Third, the surgery must be done by an experienced surgeon who is experienced in CCL procedures. Finally, post-operative care must be impeccable in order to ensure long-term results.

If you are interested in learning more about CCL or if you would like to schedule a consultation with one of our surgeons in Guwahati, please feel free to contact us at any time.

Procedure of C3R Eye Surgery

C3r surgery

Corneal collagen crosslinking (CCL) is a type of surgical procedure that uses a medication called riboflavin to bond and solidify the cornea. CCL can help to improve the vision of people who have an eye disease called keratoconus.

The procedure is done in a hospital outpatient setting. First, the doctor will make an incision into the lower part of your eye. The riboflavin will then be injected into the cornea through this incision. There is no pain or other discomfort associated with this procedure.

After about 30 minutes, the doctor will remove the bandage and you’ll be able to see better than you have in a long time. Most people are able to return to work within two days after this surgery.
