CK and The FDA

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved conductive keroplasty in 2004 as a safe procedure to treat mild to moderate hyperopia. It is also being studied internationally in clinical trials to treat astigmatism. At this time, CK is FDA approved as a safe procedure for those who are appropriate candidates for the procedure. You should speak with your doctor or eye surgeon about the benefits of CK or other laser eye procedures that may enhance your vision.
