Refractive Surgery Treatment for:
Nearvision CK (Conductive Keratoplasty) is capable of correcting low amounts of farsightedness (Hyperopia) or Presbyopia. The procedure is very safe and easy to perform. CK consists of applying a special probe with a very fine, short tip. The tip is typically applied to 8 spots on the peripheral cornea, delivering a less than one second burst of radio frequency energy to the eye which steepness the central corneal curvature.

NearVision CK (Conductive Keratoplasty) can change how the eye focuses light by reshaping the cornea to improve near vision. It uses a controlled release of radio frequency (RF) energy to shrink corneal tissue, which steepens the cornea. This steepening
creates a safe and predictable modification to the topographical (surface) curvature of the cornea for the temporary reduction of Presbyopic and mild hyperopic symptoms. CK(R) is usually performed on only one eye and is designed to reduce the dependence on reading glasses. As the patient ages, the effect of the CK can become less and the procedure may need to be repeated to maintain best reading vision.
