CK (conductive keratoplasty) is typically a quick and minimally-invasive procedures for mild to moderate levels of farsightedness (hyperopia). CK is also FDA-approved for patients who need reading glasses. CK can be performed on-site at Dr. Brian's Beverly Hills area office located in Beverly Hills. CK can also be used to treat astigmatism to improve distance or reading vision. CK can also improve reading vision after cataract surgery. Potential risks include regression (the effect wearing off), dry eyes, and suboptimal results.
CK uses heat to reshape the cornea; there are no incisions. CK is a procedure to help patients over 40 who need reading glasses. Patients can typically return to work or their daily routine the next day after the procedure, so “down time” is minimal.
