  • It is the only treatment that has shown to halt the progression of Keratoconus. 

  • The aim is to stop progression and prevent further visual deterioration, not to improve sight. 

  • It is effective in more than 90% of the cases. 

  • It is indication in every case of corneal ectasia (Keratoconus, Post refractive surgery ectasia, Pellucid Marginal Degeneration). The ophthalmologist determines if the patient is a good candidate for this procedure.

  • Riboflavine is applied topically for a few minutes and then the cornea is exposed to UV-A light.

  • As a final result we get stronger collagen unions in the cornea.
