CXL, by persuading corneal flattening is efficacious in slackening or stumbling headway of keratoconus and may even validate visual and topographic corneal improvement thus resulting into cutback in irregular astigmatism.6
Human central corneal tissue was obtained from cadaver donors and from penetrating keratoplasty interventions on patients suffering from keratoconus. Healthy donor tissues were screened and tested negative for HIV, hepatitis B and C virus, and syphilis and were not usable for human corneal transplantation.
