Keratoconus/Effects: The cornea is the clear membrane that covers the colored part of the eye and pupil.The cornea is the “window” of the eye and is the most powerful lens in the eye as well.
Since that time, cataract surgery and artificial lenses have continued to evolve and develop.
Keratoconus can cause substantial visual loss of vision, image distortion, streaking of lights, sensitivity to light, and multiple images., etc.
Keratoconus affects around almost one person in a thousand.
Purpose: Corneal Crosslinking (CXL) is an investigational treatment for Keratoconus patients and Post Lasik Ectasia patients that experience corneal thinning after Refractive Surgery.
This trial is studying if this one-time treatment will strengthen the cornea so that the progression of Keratoconus and Corneal Ectasia is slowed or stopped.
