Corneal Cross Linkage

Corneal Cross Linkage

If we think about the eye as a camera, the cornea would be the glass at the front of the camera lens. The cornea is not only a clear window through which light passes on its way into the eye, it provides most of the focusing power in the eye as well. Corneal disease is a serious condition that can cause clouding, distortion, scarring and eventually blindness.
Corneal Diseases

There are many types of corneal diseases. Three major types are:

  • Keratoconus
  • In this condition, the front part of your eye, called the cornea, thins out and gets weaker over time. This makes it bulge into a cone shape, which can distort your vision and make it hard to see.
    And it may result in progressive destructive vision loss. Corneal Cross Linking (CXL) is the ideal and state of art treatment for Keratoconus to halt this progress and thanks to the only FDA approved system by AVEDRO Inc USA, available at NECL.

  • Fuchs' endothelial dystrophy
  • Bullous keratopathy

We at National Eye Center have the complete arrangements for the treatments of corneal diseases.
