Corneal Cross-linking

 

Cross-linking is the only approved treatment for CCLhalting the progression of keratoconus. Dr. Price, one of the most experienced surgeons at performing cross-linking in the United States, contributed to FDA approval of cross-linking and served as an investigator in the original USA clinical trials, starting back in 2008. As a result of these studies, the FDA determined that cross linking is a safe and effective treatment. The Price Vision Group team has also participated in some more recent clinical trials for advancements in cross-linking that are not yet approved.

The care I have received at Price Vision Group has been nothing short of exceptional. Embarking on this journey can be very scary and daunting task, but it something I recommend 100%.

The cross-linking procedure involves the combined use of riboflavin (vitamin B2) eye drops and UVA light to strengthen the front layers of the cornea. The company that received the FDA approval expects to have the riboflavin and UVA light commercially available by the end of 2016. Until then, Price Vision Group is providing patients access to cross-linking through an ongoing investigational study.

I have had cross-linking done in both eyes. The pain during the procedure was basically non-existent, and I just had an enjoyable hour-long conversation. I had a little pain the first night, but after that things were fine. Overall, it was very easy. They explain everything and tell you what to do. Just show up and you are good to go. My left eye has remained the same, which is good because it was 20/20 to start. My right eye which was worse has had some slight improvement since the procedure. Overall, I would say just do it, it’s easy.
