Corneal elasticity in cross-linking using Brillouin microscopy, published in IOVS


We studied depth-resolved corneal elasticity after cross-linking treatment using Brillouin Microscopy.  The anterior stroma contributes the most to the stiffening of the cornea following cross-linking. The standard epi-on cross-linking is 3 times more efficient in stiffening the cornea than the epi-off procedure. The study  is the result of a collaboration between Yun’s Lab at Wellman Center of Photomedicine (Harvard-MGH) and the Visual Optics and Biophtonics Lab, Institute of Optics, CSIC.
