C3R Surgery In Sirsa​

Corneal collagen cross-linking (CCL) is a new, minimally invasive surgical treatment for corneal dystrophy. CCL uses riboflavin (vitamin B2) to cross-link the corneal collagen fibers. This treatment has shown significant improvement in the vision of patients with advanced corneal dystrophy and is currently the only FDA-approved treatment for this condition.

CCL can be performed on either eye and typically takes about one hour per eye. After CCL, patients may experience some mild discomfort for a few days, but it is generally minor and manageable. There are no long-term side effects associated with CCL, and it is generally safe for both adults and children.

If you are interested in treating your eyes with CCL, please contact our Mantracare Sirsa for more information.

Procedure of C3R Eye Surgery

C3r surgery

Crosslinking of corneal collagen is a common procedure used to improve the stability and integrity of the cornea. Crosslinking is a chemical reaction that binds two or more molecules together. 

The most common crosslinking agent is riboflavin, which is a vitamin B2. Crosslinking with riboflavin occurs when the cornea is exposed to ultraviolet light. This causes the corneal tissue to become swollen and discolored. After the swelling subsides, a small incision is made in the center of the eye. 

The riboflavin solution is then injected through this opening. The crosslinking reaction between the riboflavin and the corneal tissue creates a stronger bond between the molecules, which reduces the risk of eye surgery complications.

Happy Patients from Sirsa after C3R Surgery

Rishi Sachdeva

“My daughter was diagnosed with corneal dystrophy. The doctors told me that the only way to save her vision is by doing crosslinking surgery. I researched the procedure thoroughly and found that MantraCare is the only hospital with this technique and they offer it at their cost, which meant it would be much less expensive than other hospitals. I decided to go ahead with the surgery, and it turned out beautifully.”
