Conductive Keratoplasty (known as CK) has many benefits for those who are trying to explore vision correction to improve reading vision. CK uses radio waves to reshape the cornea instead of a laser. This is a non-invasive procedure that helps those with Farsightedness, Nearsightedness, and even with those who have Keratoconus at many stages.
Farsightedness (also known as Hyperopia) is a condition that prevents the patient from seeing clearly at close range. The cornea is typically a sphere shape, but sometimes there is damage or it becomes irregular which prevents the patient from seeing images properly. There are many treatments available to help improve the vision of the patient. Those who are compatible can reduce the irregularity of the cornea with this non-invasive procedure.
