X-Linking Corneal Scans

Here is how my cornea looked like just before the crosslinking operation

And here comes the picture, a little more than a month after the operation

Valeri, you need to give us the keratometer's value in order to compare the scans before and after the operation.
Thank you very much for the scans!
Phil

Not sure what you mean by keratometer value... I only took this pictures with my camera phone at Dresden while holding the actual prints and waiting to enter the doctors room...

I must say that is the best before and after topos i've seen after the most simplest of kc treatment...and it is still very early days in the recovory stage!

Thank you very much for sharing that with us...I know it brings hope for many...

What i like about X-Linking is that...

-it is the only treatment which in studies show 100% stopping of kc.

_extra benifits of more comfortable lens wear due to the cornea being stronger

_the stiffening of the cornea may also stop against any contact lens side effects on the cornea

_If you go to the right place like Valeri did...you go to the inventers and so the experts in the field...not to others who inflate the prices and market it to make a quick buck! out of our situation.

_Five/Six year follow up data....no problems!

_possiblities of repeating the treatment after time.

If I wore contacts I would be over to Germany like a shot!...at the moment my kc has stopped progressing....i would like to consider x-linking for more regression...that would be the main reason for me...I know that for 60% of people, that they get on average 2 lines of regression...so that means that some lucky people will get even more than two lines...which would be great!

Thanks again Valeri....

Thank you very much for your scans, Valeri.
However, we could'nt really compare the scans before and after the operation because we need these informations:KS, KF, and KD for the scans before the operation.

Hello Tim,

KS: axis where the Keratometer's value ("normal" Keratometer value: 40) is the highest in our cornea.
KF: axis where the Keratometer's value ("normal" Keratometer value: 40) is the lowest in our cornea.
KS-KF= KD
KD represents the degree of apparent astygmatism in your cornea.
Greetings,
Phil
