Corneal Collagen Cross Linking in Portland Maine

Corneal Collagen Cross Linking is a minimally invasive treatment that may strengthen the cornea and may prevent corneal ectasia or “bulging” in diseases such as Keratoconus. The cross-linking treatment is thought to work by forming new bonds within the cornea, which act as stabilizers or anchors. This is thought to stop or slow the bulging often seen in Keratoconus.  Corneal Collagen Cross Linking is performed by placing riboflavin eye drops onto the surface of the eye and exposing the surface to a precise amount of ultraviolet light.  Since no other treatment is currently available to prevent the progression of Keratoconus, the FDA approval of Collagen Crosslinking is widely anticipated by many Cornea Specialists.
