Corneal Cross-Linking (CXL) is an established surgical procedure for the treatment of corneal disorders such as corneal ectasia and keratoconus. This method of treatment stabilises the corneal structure and increases rigidity, reducing the requirement for corneal transplantation. Since its development, many scientific studies have been conducted to investigate ways of improving the procedure. Biomechanical stability of the cornea after exposure to UV-A light, and the effect of shortening procedure time has been some of the many topics explored
