Conductive Keratoplasty



Conductive Keratoplasty (CK) uses very accurate pulses of radio-frequency waves to reshape the cornea and may be used for a variety of corneal issues. Some people use CK electively to correct mild hyperopia as a way to reduce their dependence on reading glasses.

Instead of a scalpel or a laser, CK releases radio-frequency energy through a probe as thin as a strand of human hair, without cutting or removing tissue. After application of a numbing drop, radio-frequency energy is applied in a pattern to shrink small areas of corneal tissue. A circular shrinkage pattern can be used to create a band of constriction (like the tightening of a belt) in areas of the cornea that require tightening to help your vision improve. Other patterns are used for various corneal shape problems. Your surgeon may offer CK alone or in conjunction with other treatments.
