CCL, CXL - corneal cross linking

CCL or Corneal Cross Linking (sometimes also CXL) is a method of strengthening the cornea.

By combining riboflavin and selective ultraviolet rays, we can create strengthening linkages among the individual molecules of the corneal tissue.
Thus the corneal tissue becomes stronger and more resistant.
It is particularly used in keratoconus and pellucid marginal degeneration.
