C3R Surgery In Kurnool​

Corneal collagen crosslinking (CCL) is a common treatment for dry eye syndrome (DES), and it has also been used to improve visual acuity in patients with keratoconus. In recent years, CCL has also been used to treat corneal scarring, including after LASIK surgery.

One of the problems with CCL is that it can be expensive. One study found that the cost of CCL was about twice as high as the cost of LASIK procedures. One reason for this is that CCL uses riboflavin (vitamin B2) as an agent to crosslink the corneal collagen fibers. Riboflavin is a rare dietary vitamin and it can be difficult to find in some areas.

If you are considering CCL or LASIK surgery, be sure to discuss your options with your doctor in Kurnool.

Procedure of C3R Eye Surgery

C3r surgery

The surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia. First, the doctor will clean and prepare your eyes. They will then apply an anesthetic to the area surrounding your eye. After the anesthetic has taken effect, the doctor will place a small lens over your eye. The laser treatment will then begin.

The laser used in this procedure is called a femtosecond laser. The laser beam is so short that it only takes about 100 trillionths of a second to cause damage to the corneal collagen. Once the damage has been caused, the crosslinking process can begin.

The doctor will use riboflavin to help speed up the crosslinking process. Riboflavin is a vitamin that is also known as an antioxidant. It helps protect cells from damage and also speeds up the cross-linking process.

After crosslinking has been completed, your doctor will remove the lens and antibiotic ointment from your eyes. You will be able to return home immediately following surgery.

I have experienced great improvement in my vision since having the procedure done.”
