A 35-year-old male asked:

Yes: You do have to apply the drops correctly for them to work. They do have to reach the surface of your eye (the white part or conjunctiva). You cannot simply drop them on to the outside of the eye-meaning the skin or eyelids. There are several types of prescription eye drops that work very well to control allergic symptoms when used correctly
A 28-year-old female asked:
Dr. Richard Witlin

Yes: you are referring to collagen cross-linking which is designed to increase the strength of your cornea. It has been shown to be effective in helping to stabilize your cornea and prevent progression of keratoconus. It is worth going to see a corneal specialist for a consult.
