C3R Surgery In Patiala​

Corneal collagen crosslinking (CCL) is a popular surgical treatment for keratoconus, a progressive eye disease that affects the cornea. CCL uses riboflavin, a vitamin B2, to crosslink the corneal collagen fibers. This prevents the cornea from becoming thinner and more curved over time.

There are several benefits to using riboflavin surgery for CCL. First, it is a safe treatment with minimal side effects. Second, it is an outpatient procedure that can be completed in just a few hours. Third, it is effective at treating all types of keratoconus. And finally, it is one of the most cost-effective treatments available for keratoconus.

Procedure of C3R Eye Surgery

Corneal collagen crosslinking (CCL) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that uses riboflavin to crosslink the corneal collagen fibers. CCL is used to improve the appearance of the eye and reduce the likelihood of future vision loss.

Step one: An incision is made in the center of your eye.
Step two: The riboflavin solution is injected into the incision using a needle.
Step three: The crosslinking solution is applied to the damaged cornea.
Step four: The eyes are closed for several minutes, and then reopened.
Step five: The incisions are closed with stitches, and you can return to your normal activities.
