Can Surgery Stop Presbyopia?

Can Surgery Stop Presbyopia?

If you are middle-aged or older and have developed presbyopia, is eye surgery an option for you?

There is a surgery available that may benefit those with presbyopia. A treatment called conductive keratoplasty (CK) which uses radio waves to create a more bendable cornea, thus improving near vision.

This procedure was FDA approved in 2004 for the temporary reduction of presbyopia. However, it should be known that this procedure is not a life-long fix from presbyopia, it is only temporary. Your doctor should be able to supply you with more information and if this eye surgery is right for you.
