Conventional cross linking is still King Kong – say surgeons from Hong Kong


Keratoconus eye disease is no laughing matter. It afflicts teens and can destroy careers. We need to accelerate our fight against this vicious disease. At the same time we have to study scientifically the newer protocols. Accelerated cross linking speeds the treatment by decreasing the time of exposure of UV light. This has recently been studied in pediatric keratoconus.

This landmark study from Hong Kong By Surgeons of Royal college is a landmark one. It shows that accelerated cornea cross linking slows the progress of the bulging eye disease. it is the first one to document that only conventional cornea cross linking with its deep demarcation line can actually flatten the cornea. In essence it means that the 30 min api off intervention can halt the progression as well as reverse some of the effects.

The deeper the demarcation line the more the cornea flattening .

Keratoconus Experts in Los Angles thank the authors to bring new meaningful data for mutual benefit.
