PURPOSE Our main purpose was to compare safety and efficacy in the treatment of progressive keratoconus with "epithelium-on" and "epithelium-off" corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL). Our secondary purpose was to evaluate efficacy of CXL when hypotonic 0.5% riboflavin is used as photosensitizer. METHODS One eye of 20 patients with bilateral progressive keratoconus was randomly treated for "epithelium-on" CXL (group 1) while the fellow eye underwent "epithelium-off" CXL (group 2).
