Near Vision CK
Conductive Keratoplasty (CK) is a non-laser way to treat farsightedness and presbyopia. It strengthens the power of the cornea without laser and without treating the line of sight. It has been available since 2003.
If you are 45 or older, had good vision all your life, and hate your reading glasses CK could be right for you. Or, if your have mild Hyperopia (+.50 to +2.00) CK could improve both your distance and near vision.
The procedure is quick, done in office, and has a fast recovery. The Eye Clinic of Florida does free CK screenings so call 813.779.3338 to schedule yours.
