Refractive procedure for Presbyopic correction

Imagine you wake up to clear view of the world. Imagine you are set free from depending on Glasses and Contact Lenses.

Imagine you can see the world as sharp and clear from the time you wake up to the time you go to bed.

Conductive Keratoplasty

Conductive Keratoplasty (CK) or Near Vision CK is the preferred choice for Refractive Surgery by all the eye surgeons for patients above 40 years of age. It is done to correct Presbyopia by reshaping the cornea with the help of Radio Frequency energy instead of a Laser or Scalpel.

What Is Presbyopia ?

As we age, our eyes lose their ability to focus on near points. Reading, seeing the time on a watch, identifying the object near you or working on a computer becomes difficult. This usually begins to occur when we cross 40 years of age. It happens to everyone. Besides Reading Glasses, Conductive Keratoplasty is the only treatment available to correct Presbyopia.

Why CK ?
  • Near Vision CK procedure is specifically for people over 40 years of age, who want freedom from Reading Glasses or Contact Lenses.
  • When a patient has gone through a LASIK Surgery or has implanted multi-focal / accommodating Intra Ocular Lenses (IOLs) during Cataract Surgery and still requires Reading and Distance Glasses, then CK treatment can be rendered to cure the problem.
  • The procedure takes only a few minutes.
  • It is a safe and minimally invasive procedure which done without cutting and removing of eye tissues.
  • CK is the first US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved vision technology for patients with "Aging Eyes"i.e. Presbyopia.
  • CK is certified by the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) as a vision correction procedure for Pilots who want to reduce/eliminate their dependency on Glasses or Contact Lenses.
  • CK is the only safest and most effective procedure to obtain a FAA protocol for Refractive error correction.

Good Candidacy For Near Vision CK : -

  • You are a good candidate for Near Vision CK if you are tired of your Reading Glasses.
  • Have difficulty in reading the newspaper or identifying other objects which are close to you.
  • Are at least 40 years of age.
  • Have had good distance vision for most of your life.
  • Have no health issues affecting you eyes.
  • Are not pregnant or nursing.

Fda Approved Equipment For CK : -

The Procedure is done with the help of View Point CK System (from Refractec) which uses the probe with a Micro thin (90u diameter) single use KERATOPLAST tip for delivering Radio Frequency energy directly to the corneal stroma.

RF is one of today's most advanced surgical technologies. In addition to its use in CK, RF technology is being used in prostrate cancer therapy, back surgery and even cardiovascular procedures.

Consultation : -

Your eyes will be examined using equipments as unique as the Wave front technology itself. To assist our doctor please do not wear soft/rigid Contact Lenses for a minimum period of two week beforehand, as they distort the cornea and might influence the outcome of the treatment.

If you have any old prescriptions for Contact Lenses or Glasses or details of any eye treatment you have altered over time, we can best determine how to treat them.

CK Procedure : -

STEP-I: Topical or "Eye Drop" anesthesia is applied to numb the eye and to ensure a painless procedure.

STEP-II: A circular treatment pattern is imprinted on the cornea using "rinse away ink" to guide the doctor's treatment.

STEP-III: Using a probe, which is thinner than the strand of human hair, Radio waves are applied in a circular pattern to shrink a small area of collagen in the cornea.

STEP-IV: The circular treatment patterns will act like a belt tightening around the cornea by increasing its overall curvature to improve near vision.
