Abstract

Collagen cross-linking (CXL) was introduced in the late nineties and was later adopted as a treatment option for keratoconus, pellucid marginal degeneration, and post-LASIK ectasia in 2003.1, 2, 3 CXL is the only treatment modality for these conditions that addresses the underlying stromal weakening and thus halts disease progression. Recently, accelerated CXL was proposed as an alternative technique, whereby corneal stiffening can be achieved with higher fluence and reduced overall exposure time.
