NearVision CK is a procedure that can free you from having to wear reading glasses.
If you have trouble seeing clearly up close, this minimally invasive alternative to laser treatment can improve your vision in just a few minutes.
What Is NearVision CK?
NearVision CK is the trademarked name for conductive keratoplasty. Conductive keratoplasty is a process that uses heat from radio waves to reshape your corneas.
At the beginning of the procedure, your eye doctor will administer anesthetic drops, then use a speculum to keep your eyes open. He or she will use a handheld probe and slowly apply radio frequency energy to reform spots along your cornea’s outer perimeters.
The affected tissue then shrinks, effectively steepening the cornea’s slope. The newly enhanced curvature affects how the eye transmits and translates light, thereby improving your close-up vision.
What patients love about this procedure is that they enjoy an almost instant transformation in their vision. It takes a few weeks to see the final, full effect, but the treatment is completed in under five minutes per eye.
However, the main advantage of this procedure is that it’s practically risk-free, because there is no removal of corneal tissue. No laser or surgical blade is involved. In fact, you can undergo NearVision CK even if you’ve already had laser surgery.
NearVision CK is painless and safe. It’s approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a valid vision correction treatment, and it’s extremely effective.
After the Procedure
You may have mild symptoms in the 24 hours following treatment, including blurry vision, light sensitivity or the feeling of a foreign body in your eye. While your eyes heal, try to avoid getting water or sweat in them. Do not wear eye makeup for at least a week, and try not to rub your eyes.
In some cases, the procedure may have to be repeated if the results fade.
Who Are the Best Candidates?
Typically, the best candidates are adults who are tired of the ongoing maintenance and costs involved with corrective lenses and glasses. If you want to be able to see clearly while reading but don’t want to have to take your glasses everywhere you go, NearVision CK could be the answer you’ve been looking for.
