ABSTRACT
The article reports on the effectiveness of corneal cross-linking with femtosecond laser, according to a presentation by surgeon Elias F. Jarade at the 2008 European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons meeting. Jarade claimed this technique allows a better stromal diffusion and quicker absorption of the photosensitizing agent, without leakage and dispersion. He added that the technique allows adequate riboflavin absorption and ultraviolet light delivery without epithelial removal.
