Study of the Safety and Effectiveness of Collagen Cross-Linking in Eyes with Keratoconus or Ectasia

A corneal collagen cross-linking treatment has been used for nearly a decade to treat keratoconus and keratectasia, delaying or preventing the need for more invasive procedures with several prospective trials shown improvement in vision and cornea steepening. It has become the standard of care for progressive keratoconus and ectasia after LASIK worldwide.
