Spring is here and annual checkups and physicals are at the top of most families lists. Improving reading vision is an important part of many of our lives, especially for those who live an active life. Spring could be a good time to discuss with your eye care professional about how you can improve reading vision.
For those with increasing difficulty reading, CK can be an option to improve reading vision.
What is CK and What are the Benefits
What is CK?
CK is a non-invasive procedure that can be performed in the doctor’s office. It reshapes the cornea using low grade radio waves. It can also be done in combination with other procedures to help improve the overall result. It is a great option for those who are slowly losing their reading vision.
What are the Benefits of CK?
There are several benefits of using CK for vision correction. Below are a few:
• Reduced recovery & procedure time
• Little to no pain
• Non-invasive procedure
• Helps improve near vision within 1 day

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.

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
