The purpose of this experiment was to validate in vivo the corneal penetration and photo-stabilization of riboflavin in solution with Sodium Iodide (NaI) and to evaluate effect of NaI on the persistence of Ribostat™ (riboflavin 0.5% & sodium iodide 0.015%, CXL Ophthalmics) using recommended clinical procedures for corneal collagen cross-linking during application and UVA exposure in New Zealand White rabbits.
