C3R Surgery In Madurai​

Corneal Collagen Crosslinking (CCL) is a new technique to improve the appearance of the eye. CCL uses riboflavin, an antioxidant, to crosslink the cornea’s collagen fibers. This results in a smoother surface and reduced visibility of the wrinkles and scars that often occur over time.

There are several benefits to CCL as an option for improving the appearance of the eye. First, CCL is quick and easy. It can be performed in an office setting without an overnight stay. Second, CCL results in a shorter recovery time than traditional surgeries. Third, CCL is considered non-invasive, meaning there is no risk of permanent damage or loss of vision.

If you are interested in learning more about CCL or considering it as an option for your own eye care, please contact our office in Madurai for more information.

Procedure of C3R Eye Surgery

C3r surgery

Corneal collagen crosslinking with riboflavin is a common procedure used in eye surgery. The procedure involves injecting a solution containing riboflavin into the eye to crosslink the corneal collagen. This process results in a stronger and more durable cornea.

First, the surgeon will make an incision in the patient’s eye. They will then remove the outer layer of the eye, including the iris and pupil. This is necessary so that the riboflavin can reach the corneal tissue.

Next, they will inject the solution containing riboflavin into the eye. The riboflavin will then crosslink the corneal collagen, which will create a stronger and more durable cornea. Afterward, the surgeon will stitch up the incision and restore the outer layer of the eye.
