Collagen Cross Linking

I need to find a link but had a photo call for this. New treatment to STOP keratoconus getting worse. Not an NHS available treatment but the principle seems good. All I need to do now is persuade my early cone patients to have this done. If the claims are true and research suggest so (Again I need to post the references) this simple treatment will stop keratoconus progressing to corneal grafts. Problem though is giving false hope that the condition will get better. All it looks like it does is stabalise. So the poor folk who struggle with RGP CL's will still struggle. But hey! they won't get worse.
