C3R Surgery In Karnal​

Corneal collagen cross-linking (CCL) is a relatively new and minimally invasive treatment for keratoconus. It involves the injection of riboflavin into the cornea, which reacts with corneal collagen to produce a temporary netting or mesh structure. This restores the weakened cornea and improves vision. 

The procedure is usually done in one session as an outpatient procedure. The doctor will determine if you are a good candidate for CCL based on your medical history, eye exam results, and refraction test results. Recovery time from CCL usually takes about two weeks but can vary depending on your individual case.

If you are interested in learning more about CCL or if you are considering this treatment as an option for your eyes, please contact our office in Karnal. We would be happy to discuss your options with you and answer any questions that you may have.

Procedure of C3R Eye Surgery

C3r surgery

Corneal collagen crosslinking is a procedure that uses riboflavin (vitamin B2) to bond the corneal collagen fibers together. The benefits of this procedure include a reduction in the likelihood of ocular surface diseases, such as dry eye syndrome, and an increase in the quality of vision. 

In order to perform corneal collagen crosslinking, a surgeon will first create a pocket by trimming the excess skin around the eye. After the pocket is created, they will fill it with anesthetic and then inject a solution containing riboflavin into the pocket. The riboflavin will then start to bond the collagen together, which will result in a stronger and more durable cornea.

Happy Patients from Karnal after C3R Surgery

Rishi Sachdeva

“I am writing to thank you for the care and treatment I received from your staff and doctors. They took the time to explain everything and answered all of my questions. What made my eyes better than expected was when I went back for my follow-up appointment. I had a few issues over the course of treatment and I was surprised to see that Dr. Shweta was able to fix what the other doctor couldn’t! I will forever recommend MantraCare.”
