    Corneal collagen cross-linking is a promising new modality to limit progression of ectatic corneal diseases and in the
    future may be a mainstay in the early treatment of post-LASIK ectasia. In this point-counterpoint presentation from Cornea Subspecialty Day, Dr. Roy Rubinfeld argues that the epithelium-on technique is not only the safest approach, inducing none of the haze, infection, or healing problems associated with epithelium-off, but it is also effective.
