I think you need to get a cornea specialists opinion regarding collagen cross linking

Presence of progression requires surgical intervention. One needs t see the amount of progression and the time between the two scans. Also without verifying the quality of the scans, a diagnosis of progression is accurate. Usually we do not see much progression after the age of 35. As part of surgical management is concerned, crosslinking would possibly only arrest the progression. We also have to see the quality of vision after the progression.

Collagen crosslinking is first choice of treatment if keratoconus is not advanced.it can be also followed by intracorneal implants.if very advanced then keratoplasty is the choice.conservatively you can go for rose k contact lens.but I prefer cross linking

There are various options for the treatment of keratoconus, including; spectacles or glasses, contact lenses, corneal implants and corneal transplants. In the early stages of keratoconus, glasses are usually successful in correcting the myopia and astigmatism, however as the condition advances the cornea becomes highly irregular and vision is no longer adequately corrected with glasses.... Consult Ophthalmologist....
