Corneal Crosslinking

New Corneal Procedure Now Available.

We are proud to announce that Corneal Collagen Crosslinking (CXL) will now be offered at Eye Specialty Group. CXL is a relatively new medical procedure for a progressive eye disease called keratoconus. The Corneal cross-linking technique uses UV light and a photosensitizer to strengthen chemical bonds in the cornea, thereby halting the progression of keratoconus.

An independent Institutional Review Board-approved study is now open to enroll patients to participate.

Study Requirements:

  • 12 years old or older
  • Progressing keratoconus or other ectatic disease
  • Post-Lasik (or other corneal refractive procedure) ectasia
  • Fluctuating refraction after RK
  • Able to commit to a minimum of six (6) office visits (1 day, 1 week, 1, 3, 6, 12 months) during a 12 month period.
