My CXL + T-PRK experience in Canada

In KC the cornea is thinner than normal corneas and also weaker. With Lasik this happens also. Therefore KC together, with Lasik is not recommended.

In PRK no flap is created and therefore for SOME KC patients they might be in the remit for PRK with CXL.

Has the quality of the cross linking plus prk surgery gotten better over the last few years?

I had CXL about 10 years ago (maybe it was longer, I forget), and was one of the clinical experiments. I'm 70 now. CXL only on 1 eye, they said the other was too advanced.. I doubt it, but it was during the trials and I'm pretty sure they wanted to keep their success numbers up because it had already been approved in Europe. Anyway, it stabilized my one eye for the last 10 years, and after being fitted with 2 scleral lenses, I can see (with both eyes, the Scleral lens is amazing) better than my 19 year old son.

Good Luck

Hard to believe it's been 7 years!  Not too much has changed.  My dryness issue has mostly cleared up.  I'd say only a few times a year I reach out for eye drops.  Otherwise, my vision mostly remains the same... I still have some minor issues but glasses do a lot to help.  Right now my only struggle is just getting old (I'm in my 40s now) and dealing with my eyes getting older and needing new prescriptions as my close-up vision gets worse.  But keratoconus-wise everything is quite stable.
