What is conductive keratoplasty?

If the patient has clear distance vision and the only problem is poor near vision due to presbyopia, conductive keratoplasty is performed on only one eye. This creates a mild form of monovision, meaning that one eye is corrected for near vision while the other eye is stronger for distance vision. While CK can improve near vision, the procedure doesn't cause as much blurring of distance vision as monovision with contact lenses or laser vision correction procedures such as LASIK.

• Patients who are over 40 years old • Patients who have had good distance vision the entire life but now need reading glasses

Patient will meet with an eye doctor to go through medical history taking and eyes will be fully examined. During the consultation, an instrument called a corneal topographer will be used to create a detailed map of the curvature of cornea. The topographer doesn't touch the eye, and the measurement is similar to having a close-up photograph taken of eye's surface.
