Collagen cross-linking using rose bengal and green light to increase corneal stiffness.


PURPOSE Photochemical cross-linking of corneal collagen is an evolving treatment for keratoconus and other ectatic disorders. We evaluated collagen cross-linking by rose bengal plus green light (RGX) in rabbit eyes and investigated factors important for clinical application. METHODS Rose bengal (RB, 0.1%) was applied to deepithelialized corneas of… (More)
