Conductive Keratoplasty: corneal correction of hyperopia and presbyopia

In hyperopic refractive error, the cornea may be too flatly curved for the eye to allow incoming light to form a clear image on the retina. With Conductive Keratoplasty (CK) surgery, however, the shape of the cornea can be changed in order to help light focus more crisply on the retina.

In this surgery, a small probe is used to apply radiofrequency energy to the outside edge of the cornea, resulting in a steeper central shape of the cornea. CK can also be used to create monovision in one eye and help relieve the symptoms of presbyopia.
