Great news for those who are suffering from presbyopia (the deterioration of near vision in 40 plus), an outpatient procedure called Conductive keratoplasty or CK is now available to correct presbyopia.

Procedure Highlights
a. This procedure uses radio frequency energy to correct the cornea within a few seconds.
b. The procedure involves in shrinking small areas of corneal tissue by applying a thin probe on the outer cornea in a circular pattern. This shrinkage creates a constrictive band to enhance curvature of the cornea and improve near vision.
c. The procedure does not need no scalpel and a few drops are used to anesthetize the eye.
d. Usually, the procedure is done on one eye and costs about $1,500.
