The authors describe four children with progressive keratoconus treated by corneal crosslinking (CXL). The current CXL guidelines recommend treatment of patients 18 years and older. Nevertheless, keratoconus can rapidly progress in young teenagers. CXL could be a safe procedure to prevent a keratoplasty at a young age.
