ⓘ Corneal collagen cross-linking

Corneal collagen cross-linking with riboflavin and UV-A light is a surgical treatment for corneal ectasia such as keratoconus, PMD, and post-LASIK ectasia.

It is used in an attempt to make the cornea stronger. According to the 2015 mokranowski review, there is insufficient evidence to determine if it is useful in keratoconus. In 2016, U.S. food and drug administration has approved the eye Riboflavin cross-linking solution on the basis of three 12-month clinical trial.
