Refractive Surgery Treatment for:
- Mild Farsightedness (Hyperopia)
- Presbyopia (in normal sighted eyes and in patients who are now normal sighted following laser surgery years earlier but who are now Presbyopic).
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 steepens the central corneal curvature.
Conductive Keratoplasty is one of two FDA-approved procedures for the correction of presbyopia. The other procedure that has been approved by the for presbyopia is Kamra Inlay surgery.

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.
