Conductive Keratoplasty (CK)

Conductive Keratoplasty (CK) is a noninvasive procedure which utilizes radiofrequency energy to correct presbyopia and low hyperopia with or without astigmatism and now can be used at the Turner Eye Institute to correct astigmatism associated with keratoconus. It can also be used to correct residual refractive error after laser in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK) or cataract surgery.

Before and After CK and Intacs

CK for patients with keratoconus allows Dr. Patel to correct regular and irregular astigmatism by strategically placing the probe in certain spots of the cornea. The result allows for an easier fitting of contact lenses and also improving the spectacle correction (vision with glasses).

I had headaches from astigmatism my whole life. Now, with LASIK, the headaches are gone and I can broadcast a 49er game without glasses!
