PURPOSE To develop methods of collagen crosslinking the sclera to increase its biomechanical strength for the treatment of progressive myopia. SETTING Department of Ophthalmology, Technical University of Dresden, Dresden, Germany. METHODS Sagitally oriented scleral strips of 4.0 mm x 8.0 mm were prepared from 5 human postmortem eyes and 50 porcine cadaver eyes and treated with various crosslinking methods including physical crosslinking by combined riboflavin-ultraviolet A (UVA) or rose… CONTINUE READING
