C3R Surgery In Nanded​

Corneal collagen crosslinking (CCL) is a procedure that uses riboflavin (vitamin B2) to bond collagen fibers together in the cornea. CCL is a common treatment for corneal scarring, and it has been shown to be effective in reducing the severity of dry eye symptoms.

There are several types of CCL treatments, and each has its own benefits and drawbacks. One type of CCL treatment uses ultraviolet light to crosslink the collagen fibers. This type of CCL is not reversible, but it is the most effective in reducing corneal scarring. Another type of CCL uses a chemical called formaldehyde to crosslink collagen fibers. This type of CCL can be reversed, but it is less effective than the ultraviolet light type in reducing corneal scarring.

During CCL with riboflavin, an eyepiece with a special laser is put into your eyes to deliver the irradiation energy. If you have any questions about CCL, please consult with your doctor in Nanded.

Procedure of C3R Eye Surgery

C3r surgery

The procedure is done as an outpatient surgery, and most patients heal completely with no long-term effects. The doctor will first clean the area around the eye and remove any excess fluids or debris. Next, they will put an anesthesia mask over your face and insert a needle into your eye. This will allow them to inject a solution of riboflavin into the eye.

While under anesthesia, the doctor will use a scalpel to cut into the surface of your eye. This will create small wounds that will allow the riboflavin to enter the eye. The riboflavin will then start to bond with the corneal collagen, forming a temporary patch that will help improve the appearance of your eyes.

After cross-linking, some patients may experience mild pain and redness in their eyes for a few days. However, most people recover completely from this procedure with no long-term effects.
