C3R or corneal collagen crosslinking with riboflavin is the non-surgical treatment recommended to arrest or slow down the progression of Keratoconus, a rare condition of the eye which is characterised by progressive thinning of the cornea, thereby resulting in deterioration of the quality of vision. However, patients need to understand that LASIK C3R eye surgery is a treatment that prevents Keratoconus from getting any worse and it is not going to help in removal of your spectacles or correcting your refractive error. Therefore, individuals are likely to continue wearing their newly prescribed glasses or contacts following the C3R eye treatment.
As mentioned above, LASIK C3R is a latest non-surgical and non-invasive treatment for Keratoconus. The procedure aims at enhancing collagen cross linking strands with the help of Ultraviolet-A light (UVA) and riboflavin eye drops. This changes the intrinsic biomechanical properties of the cornea and promotes more robust chemical bond which makes the cornea more rigid and arrests the progression of the condition.
At Sharp Sight (Group of Eye Hospitals), we offer the best C3R treatment in India at all our centres, spread across Delhi NCR. The treatment takes about an hour per eye. Once the C3R Keratoconus Treatment is completed, a soft bandage with contact lens will be placed in the eye and antibiotic drops will be administered. However, the contact lens will be removed in one or two days.
Most patients with Keratoconus are suitable for the treatment with LASIK C3R, though it's advisable to get your eyes diagnosed by one of our experienced ophthalmologists who offer the best C3R treatment in Delhi using latest technology. However, if your Keratoconus is in advanced stage, you may require an alternate treatment. So, if you are looking for C3R eye surgery in Delhi NCR, contact us immediately.
