Keratoconus Treatment


What once may have required a cornea transplant, now can be treated with a simple outpatient procedure called Cross-Linking. This is the only FDA-approved therapeutic treatment for progressive keratoconus. 


What is Keratoconus?

Keratoconus is a progressive eye disease in which the normally-shperical cornea bulges, creating a cone-like shape, and some cases, thins the cornea. This can cause distorted and blurry vision, and increased sensitivity to bright light.

What is Cross-Linking?

A minimally invasive procedure which involves the application of riboflavin, vitamin B2 eyedrops, followed by a very specific amount and duration of ultraviolet light. The procedure is used to stiffen the cornea in order to slow or prevent further disease progression.

Is Cross-Linking Right for Me?

If you've been diagnosed with Keratoconus, talk to your optometrist to determine if cross-linking is right for you. You can also fill out our consultation form, for more information, or to set-up an appointment.

Who Performs the Procedure?

Our Ophthalmologist, Dr. Jabin Krassin, is the only specialist in Minnesota, west of Minnetonka, to offer Cross-Linking for Keratoconus. The procedure is conducted by him and his team, and takes less than an hour to perform.

Learn more about Cross-Linking, and what to expect during and after the procedure.
