Differences between faster and slower crosslinking method ?
Permalink   
 


Hello,

Anybody have any idea what are realistic differences between the croslinkings:

- the one what take more time (around 30 minutes) with less-power UV light

- the other what take less time, around couple minutes with more-power UV light

 

Thanks

Its time. Not using too little and not using too much for the same effect. In other words optimization.

Then there is the optimization of the beam profile. This is another topic altogether.

I've experienced both methods within the last year and I'd say that there is very little difference in practice.

If you have the choice between the two then I'd recommend the faster one. It's more pleasant as a patient because you spend less time using the eye opening clamp and I believe that the recovery time is also supposed to be faster too (although, speaking as someone who is still recovering from the op, its still not to be taken lightly)

Frimley park hospital have recently got the faster machine and it's done wonders for the length of their patient's waiting list.
