C3R Surgery In Gwalior​

Corneal collagen crosslinking (CCL) is a treatment for corneal dystrophy that uses riboflavin, a vitamin B2. CCL is a minimally-invasive procedure that works by strengthening the cornea’s collagen fibers. This can help improve vision in patients with dystrophy and age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

One of the benefits of CCL is that it is reversible. If you experience any adverse effects from the treatment, such as pain, inflammation, or haze, you can easily discontinue it and restore your normal vision.

In Gwalior, CCL is offered at the Mantracare by Dr. Shweta Jain. After confirming eligibility, she will provide you with all the necessary information about the procedure and schedule your appointment.

Procedure of C3R Eye Surgery

C3r surgery

Corneal collagen crosslinking (CCL) is a medical procedure that uses riboflavin to treat corneal dystrophy. CCL involves injecting riboflavin into the eye, and it can improve the vision of people with corneal dystrophy. The process of CCL involves several steps. 

First, the doctor will determine your eligibility for CCL. You need to have a diagnosis of corneal dystrophy, and your doctor needs to be sure that you are able to tolerate the procedure. After you are eligible, your doctor will create a plan for CCL. This plan will include details about the procedure and your recovery. Next, you will have surgery to inject riboflavin into your eye. This surgery will usually take around an hour to complete. 

After surgery, you will need to stay overnight in the hospital for observation. You may also need medication to help you recover from the surgery. Finally, after recovery, you will see your doctor for follow-up appointments.

Happy Patients from Gwalior after C3R Surgery

Rishi Sachdeva

“I had a corneal transplant 20 years ago, and I was always very careful about what I put in my eyes. However, it became very difficult to find the right care for my cornea when I started experiencing vision problems over the past few years. MantraCare has been able to help me maintain a good vision for all of these years.”

– Rishi (Gwalior)
