Özet

Aim: Keratoconus is a common and progressive eye disease characterized by thinning and tapering of the cornea. This degenerative eye disease is currently treated in the clinic with an interventional technique ("epi-off") that can cause serious side effects as a result of the surgical procedure. The aim of this project is to design innovative formulations for the development of a riboflavin-containing medicinal product to develop a non-invasive ("epi-on") keratoconus treatment as an alternative to current treatment modalities.
