  • All eyes were examined with the confocal microscope (Confoscan 4, Fortune Technologies, Italy), a central scan of the total corneal thickness was taken before, 1 week and 1 month after cross-linking treatment. (arvojournals.org)
  • In group A we found, after cross-linking treatment, activated keratocites from superficial stroma to 275.1 ± 85.9 µm stromal depth at 1 week and from superficial stroma to 324.9 ± 66.0 µm stromal depth at 1 month after treatment. (arvojournals.org)
  • Activated keratocites were found at the corneal stroma in patients treated after epi-off cross-linking technique, in contrast patients treated with trans-epithelial and iontophoresis-assisted crosslinking techniques did not show activated keratocites at the corneal stroma after treatment.

  • Collagen cross-linking combined with intra-stromal corneal ring segments is an effective treatment for the early stages of keratoconus. (medcraveonline.com)
  • With this treatment, the corneal surface is treated with topical riboflavin and exposed to ultra-violet Aradiation of 370 nm wavelengths and an irradiance of 3mW/cm2 for 30 minutes . (medcraveonline.com)
  • This treatment increases the stiffness of the cornea by causing the addition of new covalent bonds between and within the corneal collagen fibrils , subsequently improving the shape and refractive properties of the cornea. (medcraveonline.com)
