Progressive corneal thinning and steepening, with loss of uncorrected and, often, best spectacle corrected visual acuity.


Progressive, most common ectatic corneal disease caused due to an imbalance of enzymes within the cornea.


Condition similar to keratoconus where the cornea starts to bulge forwards at a variable time after LASIK eye surgery

Most effective for treatment corneal ectatic disorders.

CrossLinking (CXL) is used to increase the rigidity of the cornea by inducing additional cross-links within or between collagen fibers using UV-A light and a photomediator, riboflavin, with the goal of slowing, possibly stabilizing, and even perhaps reversing, the progression of corneal ectasia in patients with keratoconus.
