North Bay Eye Associates now offers a procedure called iLink corneal cross linking. This minimally invasive outpatient procedure is the only FDA approved cross linking treatment for progressive keratoconus and corneal ectasia following refractive surgery.
Keratoconus typically appears in individuals who are in their late teens or early 20s. The condition causes the cornea to weaken and thin over time, resulting in the formation of a cone-like bulge. As a result, patients can experience significant visual loss and may require a corneal transplant.
