C3R Surgery In Vasai-Virar​

Corneal collagen crosslinking (CCL) is a novel treatment for dry eye disease that uses riboflavin to crosslink the collagen in the corneal tissue. The therapy has been shown to be effective in treating both primary and secondary dry eye syndrome. 

In Vasai-Virar, CCL is offered through a multidisciplinary team of specialists at Mantracare. The therapy works by breaking down the extracellular matrix (ECM) that makes up the cornea. This allows for better hydration and protection against infection.

After CCL is performed, patients are typically prescribed artificial tears and topical ointments to help maintain the results.

Procedure of C3R Eye Surgery

C3r surgery

Corneal collagen crosslinking with riboflavin is a common procedure used in the treatment of visual problems. In this procedure, riboflavin is used to crosslink the corneal collagen fibers. This results in a stronger and more stable cornea. Crosslinking can help improve vision in people who have a number of conditions that affect their eyes, such as age-related macular degeneration, cataracts, and glaucoma.

The procedure typically takes about an hour. First, the doctor will remove any existing eye drops or ointment from the patient’s eyes. They will then put a special mask over the patient’s nose and mouth to prevent breathing problems. Next, the doctor will inject a numbing agent into the eye. This will help reduce any pain during the procedure.

After the numbing agent has worn off, the doctor will use a scalpel to cut away the damaged area of the cornea. They will then place a special ring over the damaged area of the cornea so that it does not heal too quickly. The doctor will then fill in the cut with strips of plastic or mesh that are soaked in riboflavin.

“I am a 25-year-old male living in Gurgaon. I had corneal collagen crosslinking with riboflavin surgery for my advanced keratoconus about 3 months ago. The procedure was quick and painless and the recovery time was very short. All my friends and family are amazed by the difference that this has made.”
