Conductive Keratoplasty or CK is really a safe, non-laser, non-cutting method authorized by the FDA to lessen or even eliminate presbyopia or hyperopia. Rather than a knife or a laser, CK emits radio frequency (RF) energy by way of a probe as slim as a follicle of human hair, handling your eyesight problem without cutting or getting rid of tissues. The managed discharge of RF energy in a circular pattern reduces tissue within the cornea to reshape it, enhancing the way a person’s eye focuses light.
The best way to find out if CK is the right procedure for you is to meet with Dr. Margolis in person. During your initial consultation, he'll examine your eyes and recommend the ideal treatment plan. Please call 303-797-1150 today to schedule a consultation at our Lone Tree ophthalmology office.
What is CK?
CK was the very first FDA-approved way of dealing with hyperopia. It’s less dangerous and less invasive compared to the LASIK method and helps prevent the complications connected with LASIK treatment like dry eyes, hazy vision, light sensitivity or low quality of eyesight. It requires under 5 minutes for each eye and uses just a topical anesthetic. Post-operative soreness is minimal and eyesight increases quickly.
You might be a great candidate for Near Vision CK if your eye wear prescription continues to be stable for a minimum of 12 months and you:
- Are over 40 years old.
- Have experienced good distance vision your whole life but now need reading glasses.
- Are prepared to accept slight distance blur.
If you’re planning on Near Vision CK, you need to select a refractive doctor who’s experienced using the procedure. Your physician will take a look at your eyes thoroughly to find out if you’re a good candidate.
While having your consultation, a device called a corneal topographer will probably be utilized to produce a comprehensive map of the curvature of the cornea. The topographer does not contact your eye, and the way of measuring resembles creating a close-up photograph taken of the eye’s surface.
The corneal topography chart displays the different steep and flat corneal curvatures that the doctor will need to take into account while conducting the treatment.
