At Hoopes Vision, we understand the importance of clear vision and its impact on your quality of life. We're proud to offer Corneal Cross-Linking Surgery as a safe and effective treatment for patients with keratoconus or other corneal ectatic disorders.

What is Corneal Cross-Linking Surgery?

Corneal Cross-Linking Surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that strengthens the cornea by increasing the number of cross-links between collagen fibers. This is achieved by applying riboflavin drops to the cornea and exposing it to ultraviolet light. Cross-linking helps halt corneal thinning progression, a common complication of keratoconus and other corneal ectatic disorders.

Benefits of Corneal Cross-Linking Surgery

Corneal Cross-Linking Surgery has numerous benefits, including:

  • Halting the progression of corneal thinning
  • Reducing the need for corneal transplants
  • Improving visual acuity
  • Reducing the need for contact lenses or glasses
  • Providing long-term stability for the cornea

Expected Outcomes

The success of Corneal Cross-Linking Surgery varies depending on the severity of the corneal ectatic disorder. However, studies have shown that the procedure can significantly improve visual acuity and halt the condition's progression.

What to Expect During the Procedure

Corneal Cross-Linking Surgery is an outpatient procedure that typically takes about an hour to complete. Patients will receive numbing eye drops to ensure a comfortable experience. The surgeon will then apply riboflavin drops to the cornea and expose it to ultraviolet light. Patients may experience discomfort during the procedure, but it is typically minimal.
