What Treatment Is there for Farsightedness?

If you struggle with Farsightedness, otherwise known as Hyperopia, for many years, CK maybe the right treatment for you to help you improve your reading vision.

CK (Conductive Keratoplasty) uses radio waves to shape the cornea. This treatment allows you to avoid invasive procedures to fix your farsightedness. It doesn’t require any tissue to be removed during the procedure and can reduce your nervousness by not having to go under a laser surgery or have a doctor use a scalpel on your eyes.

The procedure is so simple there are no overnight stays, and based on your ability you may be able to return to work the following day. It allows your eyes to heal quicker than other procedures and you can have a full recovery within 1 week.

Really the only concern is that you avoid rubbing your eyes for the first 1-2 weeks.

For those who have experienced farsightedness, and had difficulty doing things like reading a simple newspaper or even beginning to struggle with the computer screen, this could be a great procedure. This procedure can be done in the office, and allows you to go home right away.

Dr. Brian can help with determining if CK is right for your vision. Consult with Dr. Brian today.

Finding the Benefits of NearVision CK (Conductive Keratoplasty) for Hyperopia/Farsightedness

Most patient’s over 40 begin to lose the ability to read without the use of reading glasses.  Many patients feel like reading glasses are “a weight around their neck”.

CK (Conductive Keratoplasty) helps to reduce the need for reading glasses for patients over the age of 40.

CK (Conductive Keratoplasty) is often referred to as NearVision CK. This is because the procedure improves the near vision in the non-dominant eye.

NearVision CK is done in the doctor’s office and requires only 5 minutes per eye. The procedure is minimally invasive and does not carry the risks of LASIK eye surgery. Patients can return to work and driving usually within 1 day.

Patients sometime ask, what’s the catch – a 5 minute procedure sounds too easy. Here is the rub, although NearVision CK improves a patient’s near vision immediately, the effect wears off as the eye continues to age.  The treatment may need to be repeated every 3-5 years.

Healing is easy, there are relatively few complaints.  Occasional patients might note during healing: slight irritation and glare from light sources at night.

Top Benefits of NearVision CK:

 Reduced recovery time compared to LASIK
 Reduced procedure time compared to LASIK
 Less invasive than LASIK – increases safety
 It can be completed in the doctor’s office
 Only takes 5 minutes per eye
 See Results relatively quickly
