PURPOSE OF REVIEW To describe the development and uses of corneal collagen crosslinking (CXL) in association with keratorefractive procedures as well as in the treatment of progressive keratoconus and progressive postlaser in-situ keratomileusis (post-LASIK) keratectasia. RECENT FINDINGS CXL has been shown to be effective in slowing, halting or reversing(More)
