PURPOSE To investigate corneal wound healing following ultraviolet-A (UVA)/riboflavin corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL) in rabbit corneas. METHODS Thirty-six rabbits were enrolled in the study. Animals were divided into three treatment groups and corneas were analyzed at 24 hours and 4 weeks postoperatively. Thus, each group had 6 rabbits at each time point. Treatment groups were: 1) standard UVA+riboflavin CXL, 2) UVA alone, and 3) riboflavin alone. One eye of each rabbit served as an… CONTINUE READING
