The Eye Center P.A., a leading ophthalmology practice, is at the forefront of providing innovative treatments for various eye conditions. One such revolutionary treatment offered by The Eye Center P.A. is iLink™ Corneal Collagen Cross-Linking, a game-changer in the management of keratoconus. In this blog, we will delve into what keratoconus is, how CXL works, and the benefits of getting this treatment at The Eye Center P.A.
Keratoconus is a progressive eye condition wherein the cornea, typically dome-shaped, thins out and gradually bulges into a cone shape. This irregularity in the cornea’s curvature causes distorted vision, leading to blurred or distorted images. While keratoconus is relatively rare, affecting approximately 1 in 2,000 people, it can significantly impact one’s quality of life and visual acuity if left untreated.
Fortunately, The Eye Center P.A. offers a cutting-edge treatment for keratoconus – iLink™ Corneal Collagen Cross-Linking (CXL). CXL is a minimally invasive procedure that has shown promising results in stabilizing and even improving the shape of the cornea.
So, what exactly is Corneal Collagen Cross-Linking (CXL)? This innovative treatment involves the application of a special riboflavin (vitamin B2) eye drop to the cornea, followed by the exposure of the cornea to ultraviolet (UV) light. The combination of riboflavin and UV light prompts the formation of new cross-links in the collagen fibers of the cornea, increasing its strength and stability. By strengthening the cornea, CXL halts the progression of keratoconus and reduces the need for more invasive treatments like corneal transplantation.
