Conductive Keratoplasty (CK)
and "NearVision CK"
 
One to One LASIK is proud to introduce the latest advance in the treatment of age-related loss of reading vision – a procedure called "NearVision CK" or Conductive Keratoplasty (CK).

Conductive keratoplasty uses painless radio waves to change the shape of the cornea, the clear front window of the eye. For suitable candidates, this procedure can reduce dependence on glasses for reading after age 40.

The normal age-related loss of close-up focusing power after age of 40 is called "presbyopia." Conductive Keratoplasty (CK) can also be used to reduce dependence on glasses for those 40 years and older who have mild to moderate amounts of farsightedness.

Conductive Keratoplasty (CK) uses a pen-shaped instrument with a cool tip as thin as a human hair. After application of anesthetic eye drops, Dr. Feldman applies radiofrequency (RF) energy to the cornea in a series of "spots" which form a circular pattern.

This pattern is applied in the outer edges of the cornea and therefore minimizes interference with your line of sight. A device called a "speculum" is inserted to hold your eye open during the procedure, so you don't need to worry about blinking.

During the procedure, there is virtually no sensation at all. Once finished, you don't have to wear a patch and can usually return to work the next day. During the first 24 to 48 hours after the procedure, you may experience some mild discomfort, including a foreign-object sensation or "scratchiness" in the eye. Vision begins improving in about a week's time.

NearVision CK modifies the topographical (surface) curvature of the cornea, making it temporarily steeper and improving near vision. In FDA clinical studies, 98% of patients were able to read newspaper-size print without reading glasses after the CK procedure (12-month follow-up data).
Conductive Keratoplasty (CK) for farsightedness and NearVision CK  reduces the need for reading glasses after age 40 and makes use of radio waves that are delivered, painlessly, to the cornea (clear front window of the eye) in a ring-shaped pattern.

The radio waves cause heating and shrinking of the cornea, changing the shape of the cornea. This changes the cornea's focussing power and helps to reduce or eliminate the need for glasses.
