Corneal Crosslinking

Cross-linking is a type of procedure in which it strengthens the cornea of the eye after the effects of keratoconus take place in a person’s eyes. The way the procedure works is by applying a type of riboflavin that is liquified into the eye’s surface. The substance will then get to work and remove any corneal ectasia when exposed to ultraviolet lighting. It can also be combined with the Intacs procedures for more vision lasting results.

To the type of patients that aren’t that compatible with contact lenses, Intacs offer a far more relieving and less complicated option to treat the eyes. In fact, many physicians would recommend that method and even delay using the corneal transplant method. They believe that with Intacs alone, they can help benefit eyesight and delaying the transplants as a whole.

The purpose of Intacs are to achieve a better and improve vision for the keratoconus patient, even meaning that they don’t need to wear eyeglasses or contact lenses. With Intacs, it’s much easier and less stressful to do, as many who have done this procedure rarely have any complications with their own eyes.
