Corneal collagen cross-linking is a developing treatment for #keratoconus which uses ultraviolet (UV) light and riboflavin (vitamin B2) drops to strengthen the cornea's structure, to slow or halt the progression of keratoconus, and thereby prevent further deterioration of vision and the need for corneal transplantation.

SHARE this vision simulation and let everyone know how keratoconus patients see the world!

Keratoconus can cause significant distortion of vision, nearsightedness, irregular astigmatism, ghosting with multiple images, glare and light sensitivity. keratoconus affects both eyes but each eye may be affected differently, and patients may experience different vision problems.
