C3R Surgery In Jodhpur​

Corneal collagen crosslinking (CCL) is a novel and promising treatment for keratoconus, a debilitating eye disease. The technique uses riboflavin (vitamin B2) to create crosslinks between the corneal collagen fibers, which strengthens the structure and restores its elasticity.

The benefits of CCL include improved vision, reduced astigmatism, reduced glare, and increased comfort. The procedure is minimally invasive and can be performed in an outpatient setting. There are no long-term side effects associated with CCL, but some patients may experience mild temporary discomfort after the procedure.

If you are interested in learning more about CCL or considering this treatment option for your keratoconus, please contact our office in Jodhpur for more information.

Procedure of C3R Eye Surgery

C3r surgery

Corneal collagen crosslinking (CCL) is a surgical procedure that uses riboflavin (vitamin B2) to improve the strength and elasticity of the corneal collagen layer. CCL can help reduce the risk of keratoconus, a serious eye disease that can cause distorted vision and can also help improve overall eye health.

The procedure is performed as an outpatient surgery under local anesthesia. First, the surgeon removes the excess skin and fat around the eye. Next, they make a small puncture in the center of the pupil using a needleless syringe. Then, they slowly inject riboflavin into the eye until it becomes saturated. This will cause the cornea to start to turn yellow and flake off, which is normal. After about 30 minutes, the flaky outer layer will have been removed and your surgeon will be able to stitch up the wound. There is no long-term damage from CCL, but you may experience some temporary discomfort and blurred vision after surgery.
