Stability of CK results are improving with the introduction of new technology. An example of this new technology is NearVision CK with Lighttouch.
This Lighttouch technology allows for less compression on cornea, with the compression either being reduced or eliminated altogether. This technique also lessens the stretching of the cornea that comes with traditional CK. This new technology has shown to have stable results for months and years after the surgery with better and more predictable outcomes. Talk to your doctor about the new Lighttouch technology and learn about all aspects of CK before deciding on the procedure.
