C3R or Corneal Collagen Cross-linking 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. Infact, delay in the treatment of Keratoconus can have a severe impact on patient’s 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 advanced treatment for Keratoconus. The procedure aims at enhancing collagen cross-linking strands with the help of Ultraviolet-A light (UVA) and riboflavin eye drops which has a positive effect on the cornea that makes it more rigid and arrests the progression of corneal thinning. It usually takes about an hour to treat each eye.
At Sharp Sight (Group of Eye Hospitals), we offer the best C3R treatment in India at all our centres, spread across Delhi NCR. 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.
