Terrien’s Marginal Degeneration
Can TMD be treated?
There is no causal therapy of Terrien’s disease of the cornea. A member of the ELZA Institute was able to publish a much-noticed report, which shows that the cross-linking procedure may stop and even partially reverse the thinning of the cornea in Terrien’s disease: the published case received a CXL in both eyes. The corneas of both eyes were then stable for years and the peripheral cornea was even slightly thicker (and thus more stable).
