Cross-Linking or C3R Eye Treatment in Delhi
C3R or Corneal Collagen Cross-linking with Riboflavin is the non-surgical treatment recommended arresting or slow down the progression of Keratoconus. Keratoconus is a rare condition of the eye which is characterized by progressive thinning of the cornea, resulting in deterioration of the visual quality. Delay in treatment increases the condition and can also impact the patient’s vision severely. However, patients need to understand that LASIK C3R eye surgery is a treatment that prevents Keratoconus from getting any worse and it is not going to help in the removal of spectacles or correcting refractive errors. Therefore, individuals are likely to continue wearing their newly prescribed glasses or contacts post C3R eye treatment.
