iLink™ Corneal Cross-Linking Therapy
St. Cloud Eye Clinic now proudly offers iLink™, the first FDA-approved corneal cross-linking treatment to slow or halt the progression of keratoconus and corneal ectasia.
Corneal cross-linking is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure for progressive keratoconus and corneal ectasia following refractive surgery. The procedure combines the use of specially formulated prescription eye drops (Photrexa® and Photrexa® Viscous) with ultraviolet light to help stiffen and strengthen the cornea that has been weakened by disease.
