Procedure of C3R Eye Surgery

C3r surgery

Corneal collagen crosslinking (CCL) is a treatment that helps to improve the appearance of the cornea. It is a surgical procedure that uses riboflavin (vitamin B2) to crosslink the corneal collagen. This can help to reduce the number of wrinkles in the cornea and help to improve its overall appearance. 

CCL is typically performed as a part of eye surgery. The surgeon will first make an incision in the eye and then inject riboflavin into the eye. The riboflavin will then start to crosslink the corneal collagen, which will result in improvements in the appearance of the eye.
