C3R Surgery In Phagwara​

Corneal collagen cross-linking with riboflavin has been found to be an effective and safe treatment for corneal scarring. The procedure uses a small electric current to break down the cornea’s collagen fibers, which then can heal more effectively with the help of riboflavin. The procedure is typically done in patients who have significant scarring due to injuries or diseases such as keratoconus, age-related macular degeneration (AMD), and advanced dry eye syndrome.

The benefits of corneal collagen cross-linking with riboflavin include a reduced chance of developing new scarring, a decreased need for surgical reconstruction, and better vision in both nearsightedness and farsightedness. The procedure is also relatively simple, with minimal side effects. In most cases, patients can resume their normal activities within a few days after the procedure.

Procedure of C3R Eye Surgery

C3r surgery

Corneal collagen crosslinking (CCL) is a common eye surgery procedure used to improve the vision of patients with advanced keratoconus or other forms of corneal disease. CCL uses riboflavin, a vitamin B2, to crosslink the cornea’s collagen fibers. This helps to prevent further damage to the cornea and restores its original shape and function. There are several steps involved in CCL treatment:

  • The first step is to diagnose the patient’s condition and determine their eligibility for CCL. 
  • The second step is to prepare the patient’s eye by removing any excess tissue and using special instruments to create a precise outline of the cornea.
  • The third step is to apply heat to the cornea using a laser. This causes the corneal collagen fibers to crosslink and form a stronger structure.
  • The fourth step is to apply riboflavin solution to the area where the collagen fibers have been crosslinked. This causes the collagen fibers to re-form and harden, restoring the original shape and function of the cornea.
