keratoconus. Yes, the collagen crosslinking procedure has shown good promise in Europe and is slowly being accepted in the USA. At the recent American Academy of Ophthalmology meeting discussions on the procedure were well received.

What does your corneal specialist think about your various surgical options/collagen cross linking?
