New research on thin corneas from Zurich might be the clue to cross-linking very thin keratoconus corneas in the future
Journal of Refractive Surgery.
Zurich, Switzerland. A new study by the research group of Prof. Farhad Hafezi may open new alleys for the treatment of very thin keratoconic corneas in the future. Dr. Sabine Kling describes findings on increased oxygen availability in very thin corneas, that lead to strongly increased cross-linking efficacy. Currently, the group is working on a nomogram for clinical use of these findings. Read the article here.
