Procedure of C3R Eye Surgery

C3r surgery

Corneal collagen crosslinking with riboflavin is a procedure used to improve the appearance of the cornea. Collagen crosslinking works by breaking down the corneal collagen, which makes the eye more elastic and less likely to become wrinkled or age-related. 

After cross-linking, the surgeon will make small cuts in the eye and then use riboflavin to activate the cross-linking process. Riboflavin is a special type of vitamin that can help create strong bonds between molecules. 

The procedure takes about 60 minutes and results in a very noticeable improvement in the appearance of the eye.
