Also new to the vision correction scene is conductive keratoplasty (CK), which works by releasing radio waves to the cornea via a probe thinner than a strand of human hair.
The technique, called conductive keratoplasty, uses radio waves to reshape the cornea.
Among them, conductive keratoplasty (CK), laser thermal keratoplasty (LTK), and multifocal laser in situ keratomileusis (LASIK) are those most used in clinical practice [1-4].
Chapters include descriptions of lens extraction, anterior ciliary sclerotomy, laser reversal, expansion bands, conductive keratoplasty, intracorneal inlay, and LASIK.
A relatively new form of refractive surgery called conductive keratoplasty (CK), already approved to treat farsightedness, is being used to treat presbyopia, even though it isn't yet specifically approved by the U.S.
