Tired of your reading glasses?
If you are between 45 and 65 years old and are tired of your annoying reading glasses you now have a simple and effective non laser treatment that may reduce or eliminate your need for reading glasses or bifocals!
NearVision CK (Conductive Keratoplasty) is intended for people over 45 who want to improve there near vision and reduce their dependence on reading glasses. CK is not intended for people with myopia (nearsightedness).
All patients considering vision correction should undergo a complete examination by a Dr. Kagan prior to the procedure.
Q: Who is a good candidate for NearVision CK?
Dr. Kagan: You’re likely a good candidate for NearVision CK if you:
- Are over age 45
- Had great vision your whole life
- Require reading glasses to compensate for fading near vision
Q: How does NearVision CK work?
Dr. Kagan: CK is relatively simple procedure, takes less than 5 minutes and done in-office with only topical anesthesia (eye drops). CK is performed without the cutting or removal of tissue; no lasers are used. It uses heat from radio frequency waves to shrink collagen and change the shape of the cornea. CK is a safe and minimally invasive procedure.
Q: When can I return to work?
Dr. Kagan: With CK, the majority of our patients are able to return to work and other normal activities the day of their procedure. Those whose jobs demand intense clarity of vision (such as dentistry, surgery or computer work) may want to give their eyes some extra time to heal for several days following the procedure before getting back to work.
Q: Will my vision improve immediately after the NearVision CK procedure?
Dr. Kagan: Patients usually notice an immediate improvement in their vision after the NearVision CK procedure. However, it usually takes several weeks for the eyes to adjust to the final level of improvement.
NearVision CK Patients Testimonials:
“I have had 20/20 vision for all my life until I reached the age of 44. For 5 years I have been struggling with reading menus, small font and even newspapers. For the first time in my life I felt old. That word “old” hit me harder that anything else in my life.
Then one day, I found Dr Kagan with your help and the CK procedure. My eyesight got much better! The word “old” has disappeared from my vocabulary. Thank you very much, Dr. Kagan.”

“A huge “Thank You”! This is the first time in years that I have been able to write WITHOUT reading glasses! The transformation was as right as it was painless! The frustration of knowing that the writing is there (menus, labels on clothes, text messages, etc.), but one can’t read it until the glasses are found—is immense! Now I’m free of that and it is fantastic, so thank you again. I won’t hesitate to recommend CK to anyone with a reading glasses dependency!”
” I would like to take a moment of your time to let you know how pleased I am with the results of my CK eye surgery. After the first week following the procedure, I could finally see everything! It truly seemed like a miracle. You demonstrated your professionalism and made the experience painless and quick. Surprisingly, in just minutes after the surgery, I was able to see some very small letters. Now, my vision is better than I could have possibly imagined. It’s hard to believe that just a few weeks ago I could not function without my glasses. I will highly recommend you to my family and friends. You have proven to be exceptionally competent and extremely accurate, showing a true interest in your patient’s well being. Thank you again for providing me with such an excellent care and giving me back my “vision” of youth.

“I wanted to send you a letter thanking you for helping me be able to read, see my cell phone numbers, read blue prints. All of the things I could not do for the past fifteen years without having to put on my glasses. I feel like a kid again. In fact I’ve been so excited that I want to share my new found freedom with everyone I come in contact with.
I was also amazed at how easy and painless the procedure was and how I was able to read small print right after the procedure.
If there are any future patients you have that have doubts about doing this procedure you may certainly give them my name and phone number.
One again I thank you for your care, your professionalism and the time that you took to make me feel secure in my decision to have the CK procedure.”

” I am writing to you to express how much the CK procedure changed my life.
All my life I had 20/20 vision. Until I reached 42, then suddenly I couldn’t read so cearly, or read menus in restaurants. I persevered with this for about a year, but then went to an ophthalmologist to check my eyesight.
I was told that I needed glasses for reading, something I never thought I would need. I started to get used to them, and while reading a book, or newspaper at home no problem, but when I was out I often forgot my glasses, so I would have terrible problems reading menus, theater programs etc. This made me feel very old; I remember others always asking me to read things to them as they could not see, now it was me.
Dr. Kagan, then I found you. You told me the CK procedure was relatively new, but I was excited to try. I really felt that this would help my whole self-esteem.
Well, after you performed this procedure at the beginning of this year, I have never looked back. I can go out without my glasses, and read menus, see the numbers on my cell phone to make calls, it really has made me, lets say “liberated”.
I would also like to thank you for your patience, kindness, and professionalism. I will recommend you to anyone, and please fell free to give my number out if somebody would like to talk to me.”

“My experience with Dr. Kagan and his office was as close to ideal as it gets. I came to him with perfect long distance vision and the nuisance of an increasing dependence on reading glasses due to age.
He made no false promises, and took an inordinate amount of time explaining what I would gain and what I would lose if I chose to have CK surgery. My experience with most doctors is that they are condescending and impatient, so his 30 minutes of calmly allowing me to decide what to do, not only the initial appointment, but on the day of scheduled surgery, was reassuring and empowering.
I am thrilled with the results, and exchanging my eagle eyes with better near distance task related functions was well worth it. I can still see relatively well in the distance, and my concern of not enjoying a movie or driving without glasses has not been the slightest issue. And most importantly, I can see small print when necessary…just as he promised.
I strongly recommend Dr. Kagan and his office officiates, who never seemed to mind that I changed each and every appointment five or six times.”
