Breakthrough in eye treatment

Millions of baby boomers and seniors are now using different sets of glasses to see and read far away or close up. Till now, the only alternative to glasses and contact lens, was laser surgery. Researchers at Mt. Sinai Medical Center, felt that this was a breakthrough - because it was a non-laser treatment for people who were far-sighted. //Conductive Kerato-plasty, or “CK”, is the first minimally invasive procedure for far-sightedness. And unlike laser treatments, there’s no need to cut into the eye.

Instead, CK uses radio frequency energy. A probe, thinner than a strand of hair, applies radio waves at points around the cornea. The radio energy shrinks the tissue, increasing the curve of the cornea and correcting far-sightedness.

“The whole procedure is done in the edge of the window, not in the center of the part that you look through for quality vision. So right away it’s a safety issue that you are not touching the part that you are most using,” Asbell said.
