This groundbreaking technique offers an efficient near vision correction solution, helping individuals get rid of their dependence on glasses and embrace a life of enhanced visual freedom.

The Science Behind CK

Conductive Keratoplasty, or CK, is a unique, non-laser refractive eye surgery procedure that employs radiofrequency (RF) energy to reshape the cornea. The technique stands out in the medical field for its innovation: Instead of removing tissue, as with most eye surgeries, CK uses the power of controlled RF energy applied in a circular pattern around the cornea's periphery. The generated heat causes the corneal tissue to shrink, resulting in a constrictive tightening and corneal steepening. This technique effectively corrects mild to moderate hyperopia (farsightedness) and presbyopia (age-related loss of near vision), making CK a one-of-its-kind solution for near vision correction.


The Revolutionary Nature of CK

CK is a breakthrough in the field of ophthalmology, as it offers a unique approach to near vision correction. Unlike other methods which often involve more invasive surgery, CK is the only technique that uses RF energy to reshape the cornea without removing tissue. This advancement provides a new dimension to vision correction techniques, positioning CK as a leader in refractive eye surgery. With its unique approach, CK is truly a game-changer.

Benefits of CK

The distinct scientific approach of CK brings with it a plethora of benefits. Primarily, its minimally invasive nature leads to a quick recovery time, less discomfort, and reduced risk of complications compared to more invasive eye surgery methods. Moreover, CK offers the potential for further adjustments in response to changes in a patient's vision over time, promising a flexible, long-term solution for vision correction.

Patient Experience:

Patients undergoing CK often report a quick, comfortable, and virtually painless experience. The procedure typically takes less than 15 minutes in Dr. Kagan’s hands. The non-invasive nature of CK allows patients to return to their daily activities within 24 hours, emphasizing the convenience of this innovative procedure. Post-operation, patients are advised to rest their eyes and avoid strenuous activities for a few days, further attesting to the patient-friendly nature of CK.


With its revolutionary science and multiple advantages, Conductive Keratoplasty presents itself as an exceptional solution in the field of vision correction. Its innovative use of radiofrequency energy, quick recovery time, and lower risk of complications make it a highly suitable choice for many patients seeking near vision correction. CK stands as a testament to the continuous advancement and innovation in eye care, offering a patient-friendly solution like no other.
