C3R Surgery In Malegaon​

Corneal collagen crosslinking (CCL) is a technique used to improve the tensile strength, optical quality, and elasticity of the cornea. CCL is a minimally invasive treatment that uses riboflavin (vitamin B2) as a crosslinking agent. The riboflavin is absorbed by the cornea and forms a stable bond between the corneal proteins.

The clinical benefits of CCL include improvements in visual acuity, keratoconus, irregular astigmatism, and decreased dependency on eyeglasses or contact lenses. The procedure is relatively painless and can be performed under local or general anesthesia. There are no long-term side effects associated with CCL treatment, and most patients experience minimal discomfort following the procedure.

Procedure of C3R Eye Surgery

C3r surgery

The treatment typically involves injecting a solution containing riboflavin into the middle of the cornea. This solution reacts with the proteins in the cornea, causing them to form new bonds. Over time, this results in a stronger and more durable cornea.

There are several different types of CCL. One type uses a laser to heat up the riboflavin solution and cause it to react with the proteins in the cornea. This type is usually less invasive than other types, but it can take longer to see results.

Other types of CCL involve using a small needle to inject a solution containing riboflavin into the eye. This method is usually less invasive than laser-based treatments, but it may not result in as strong a response as other types of CCL.
