Q. Is the C3R an invasive type ie; involving removal of the epithelium and then putting riboflavin and exposure to the laser light

Ans. This method is preferred by Dr Anand Shroff. The transepithelial approach was only to combat the discomfort that lasts for a day or so, but with the flipside that the C3R procedure effectiveness was reduced, healing was uneven. To handle the discomfort, we will give you tablets/ eye drops and use a bandage contact lens to cover the treated area.
