Why did patients apply to this trial?

I’m hoping this clinical trial will help my medical condition. Currently I am using scleral lens. I learned of my diagnosis in October of 2022 and my vision changes started in 2015. I am currently a grad student in Florida for my DNP as a CRNA. The down time from epi-off CXL is to long with major risk at this point in my program.
PatientReceived 2+ prior treatments
I have progressive Keratoconus and received corneal cross linking in my left eye. Upon further testing I have been referred to treat my right eye. Expense is a concern. I want to help others with my condition to prevent further issues and prevent a corneal transplant in my future.
PatientReceived no prior treatments
