LASIK with C3R, which stands for Corneal Collagen Cross-Linking, is one such innovative approach that combines the benefits of LASIK and C3R to provide a comprehensive solution for vision correction.

Understanding C3R

LASIK with C3R is a cutting-edge procedure that addresses not only common refractive errors like nearsightedness (myopia), farsightedness (hyperopia), and astigmatism but also strengthens the cornea to prevent further deterioration. It’s an ideal choice for individuals who have thin corneas or are at risk of developing corneal disorders like keratoconus.

Key Benefits of C3R

1. Dual Action

This procedure combines the vision correction capabilities of LASIK with the corneal strengthening benefits of C3R.

2. Enhanced Safety

The inclusion of C3R makes LASIK safer for patients with thin corneas, reducing the risk of post-operative complications.

3. Customized Treatment

The procedure is tailored to each patient’s unique needs, ensuring precise vision correction.

4. Minimized Need for Eyewear

Many patients experience reduced dependence on glasses or contact lenses after this procedure.

C3R Procedure

The LASIK with C3R procedure is typically performed in two steps

1. LASIK Correction

 In the first step, LASIK is performed to reshape the cornea, correcting the patient’s refractive error. This part of the procedure is quick and virtually painless.

2. C3R Strengthening

Following the LASIK correction, the cornea is treated with a special solution and exposed to ultraviolet (UV) light. This cross-linking process strengthens the corneal collagen fibers, enhancing its stability and durability.
