cross linking + prk need your help here...


I made a prk + crosslinking in my left eye about 10 days ago.

i am still dont see any changes it the vision of my left eye (even worse the pre-op)

Is it still to early to see any results? my doctor says to be patient and wait until 1 month from the op.

Its too early in the recovery, give it a month or so, but then the cornea will be still be settling down but you will be well on your way in the recovery...with crosslinking alone it takes weeks for the haze to fade away, until its totally gone. Its just part of the healing process.

Slightly for roughly every other person, which just might be enough for better vision with glasses or contact lenses. Some people do get dramatic changes for the better, however for a good portion of patients vision stays the same as before crosslinking. The proven Crosslinking is indicated for progression, the goal is for it to be treated, when progression is detected.

CXL for progressive keratoconus may improve vision in roughlöy 40% of patients according to our long-term data
