Accelerated corneal collagen cross-linking effective for stabilizing keratoconus

In patients with mild to moderate keratoconus, accelerated corneal collagen cross-linking is effective for stabilizing topographic parameters after 12 months, according to study findings. Researchers retrospectively reviewed data from 16 eyes of 14 patients with mild to moderate keratoconus-affected eyes who had reached 6 and 12 months of follow-up. The researchers extracted and analyzed uncorrected distance visual acuity, manifest refraction, corrected distance visual acuity and computerized corneal topography data preoperatively and after corneal cross-linking.
