Corneal Collagen Cross-Linking (CXL)
Corneal Collagen Cross-Linking or CXL is a relatively new procedure that offers hope to patients with keratoconus or with keratoectasia. These conditions affect the front part of the eye called the cornea.
If you have been diagnosed with one of these conditions you may be a candidate for CXL. This procedure is a short procedure that strengthens the links between the collagen fibers in the cornea. As a result, it can stop the progression of or even partially reverse keratoconus and keratoectasia. Some patients may follow this procedure with Topography-Guided PRK in order to improve their vision further and regain their sight.
As a cornea specialist that has extensive experience with these conditions, Dr. Cohen is uniquely qualified to perform it.
