Procedure of C3R Eye Surgery

C3r surgery

Corneal collagen crosslinking (CCL) is a common procedure used to improve the appearance of the eye. The procedure uses riboflavin to create a crosslink between the corneal collagen fibers. This results in a thicker and more gelatinous cornea. CCL is usually recommended for people who have a significant amount of visible wrinkles or dryness in their eyes. The procedure is typically done as an outpatient surgery.

The patient will need to allow at least two weeks for the swelling to go down after surgery. Once the swelling goes down, they will need to wear special glasses for six to eight weeks. After that, they should resume their normal routine. There are no long-term side effects associated with CCL.
