NearVision CK is a non-laser procedure that can reduce or eliminate farsightedness and presbyopic and offer those who have difficulty seeing small print the opportunity to read again without bifocals or reading glasses. It is best suited for patients over the age of 40 who had good vision until they reached their forties.
NearVision CK uses the controlled release of radio frequency energy to reshape the cornea. A small probe is applied to the inner corneal tissue in a circular pattern, which causes the tissue to shrink. This circular shrinkage pattern creates a constrictive band, which steepens the curvatute of the cornea and increases its focusing power.
Some people who can see well at distance elect to have "blended vision" and have only one eye treated to provide them with better near vision. NearVision CK may cause temporary swelling of the cornea, so it may take a few days for the swelling to subside to appreciate the results. As your eyes continue to age, you may require additional treatments in the future.
