Q. What is the difference between the C3r and Accelerated C3r

Ans. The accelerated version was introduced to improve patient compliance. The traditional C3R requires you to be still and on the operating table for at least one and half hour per eye. Both eyes cannot be treated simultaneously, hence patient compliance decreased. Hence, the accelerated C3R is the more recent and advanced way of treating keratoconus.
