This book offers a comprehensive review of corneal collagen cross-linking (CXL), a major management modality for keratoconus and ectatic corneal disorders. It covers all aspects of CXL, including refractive and non-refractive surgery indications, models of application, safety, efficacy, performance, outcome measures, evidence, complications, contraindications, use in children, and controversies. The text reflects the significant progress made in understanding the modality since its development in the late 1990s, and pays detailed attention to new concepts, changing surgical techniques and indications, the latest evidence-based science and research, and the future of CXL. Additionally, the book provides guidance on the combined use of CXL with other modalities such as LASIK, PRK, and intracorneal ring implantation. High-quality color illustrations accompany the text. Corneal Collagen Cross Linking aims to provide readers with a solid understanding of the technique and its applications, and to encourage further research and advancements in the field.
