New Vitamin Treatment Saves Patients (Including a U.S. Olympic Athlete) from Blinding Eye Disease Without Surgery
Date:3/3/2009

LOS ANGELES, March 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Brian S. Boxer Wachler, MD, a world-renowned eye surgeon and the director of the Boxer Wachler Vision Institute in Beverly Hills, California, announced today that he has developed a new procedure that uses vitamin applications to treat Keratoconus, an often devastating condition that can lead to legal blindness in patients. Dr. Boxer Wachler's new treatment, C3-R(R) (corneal collagen cross-linking with riboflavin) is the first vision correction procedure to use vitamin treatments for Keratoconus, instead of invasive surgery, and it is now tested and available for patients.

The C3-R(R) procedure is non-invasive, painless, and takes only 30 minutes, according to Dr. Boxer Wachler. It strengthens the outer cornea layer of the eye that has been weakened by Keratoconus and prevents further progression of vision loss. The strengthening of the cornea occurs by the vitamin treatment increasing the supporting chemical bonds in the eye, a process called collagen cross-linking.

To perform the procedure, Dr. Boxer Wachler soaks the patient's eye with a riboflavin vitamin solution and then applies a diluted exposure of ultraviolet A light (500 times weaker than outdoor sunlight) to the cornea for 30 minutes. Dr. Boxer Wachler explained, "The light interacts with the vitamin drops to cause increased linkages across the weak cornea fibers of patients with Keratoconus." The effect is described by medical experts as being similar to adding steel reinforcement beams to a collapsing building, but doctors around the world are heralding the holistic nature of this innovative new treatment that uses natural vitamins and light to strengthen the walls of the cornea instead of an invasive surgical procedure.

A single treatment of C3-R(R) completely halts the disease in its tracks in 99% of cases according to studies done by Dr. Boxer Wachler and other doctors in Europe. The recovery ti
