C3R Surgery In Kota​

Corneal collagen crosslinking (CCL) is a medical procedure that uses ultraviolet light to break down the proteins in the cornea and then uses riboflavin to heal the lesions. CCL is often used to treat keratoconus, an eye condition that causes the cornea to become too thin and distorted. 

Riboflavin is a vitamin that is important for the health of the skin and eyes. Riboflavin helps to form new corneal tissue, reduces inflammation, and helps to improve vision. Riboflavin can be found in many foods, such as milk, eggs, and orange juice. 

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 Kota. 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 (CCL) is a treatment option for patients with keratoconus and other progressive corneal diseases. There are two types of CCL: manual CCL, which uses riboflavin as a crosslinking agent, and automated CCL, which uses a laser to crosslink the cornea.

The procedure for manual CCL is as follows: The doctor first examines the patient’s eyes to determine the severity of their condition. Next, they create a map of the cornea using an ophthalmoscope. This map will help the doctor determine where to place the riboflavin injections. After the injections, the doctor performs a riboflavin injection test on the patient’s eye to make sure that the crosslinking has taken place. Finally, the doctor dresses the eye and performs a final eye examination.

The procedure for automated CCL is as follows: The doctor first examines the patient’s eyes to determine the severity of their condition. Next, they place a small camera in front of one eye and an infrared laser in front of the other eye so that they can see inside them. The doctor then creates a map of the cornea using this information. Next, they place tiny drops of riboflavin (the crosslinking agent) into selected areas on the map. Finally, they use a laser to crosslink these areas.
