BACKGROUND We were able to show a significant increase in corneal stiffness of rabbit and porcine eyes after combined riboflavin/UVA-induced collagen cross-linking. In this study,we tried to treat keratoconus patients with this method to stop the progression of corneal ectasia. PATIENTS AND METHODS We treated 16 eyes of 15 patients with progressive keratoconus and mostly moderate keratectasia (48-56 dpt). After removal of the epithelium (7 mm X), riboflavin solution was applied on the cornea… CONTINUE READING
