CONDUCTIVE KERATOPLASTY (CK)
If you are tired of wearing glasses for reading, driving, small tasks, or working on the computer then CK may be the perfect answer for you. At Boothe Eye Care & Laser Center, Dr. William Boothe is pleased to offer CK (Conductive Keratoplasty) to his patents who desire to eliminate the need for reading glasses. CK provides a quick, safe, minimally invasive option for eye correction using radio frequency energy instead of a surgical cutting instrument to correct the patient with farsightedness. In fact, CK can be performed on site at Boothe Eye Care & Laser Center in as little as three minutes with the latest technology, the ViewPoint™ CK System.
What is CK?
Approved by the FDA, CK stands for Conductive Keratoplasty. CK is exclusively designed for those people suffering from farsightedness, particularly age onset farsightedness. Farsightedness is a condition in which your eye does not filter light correctly because the eye is too flat, making objects closer to you harder to see. Fortunately today, through the use of radio frequency (RF) energy, instead of a laser, CK reshapes the cornea and helps patients with farsightedness. Prior to the procedure, the doctor will place anesthetic drops in your eyes. Once your eyes are numb, the doctor uses a small pen shaped instrument to apply the radio frequency. This instrument is part of the View Point CK System that Dr. Boothe utilizes during the procedure. The radio frequency energy then concentrates on the shape of the cornea causing it to become steeper. This steepening modifies the eye so that it can once again filter light correctly. The result is a freshly shaped cornea allowing for better vision. By choosing CK for your vision correction procedure your vision will dramatically improve within a week.
Contact Boothe Eye Care & Laser Center to determine whether or not CK is correct for you.
What is the ViewPoint CK System?
The ViewPoint CK System is the actual equipment technology that Dr. Boothe will use when performing the procedure. It is a combination of a radio frequency energy console, which is the energy source for the procedure, along with a corneal marker, speculum, hand piece and keratoplast tip. The corneal marker simply marks the cornea for surgery and the speculum helps to hold the eye open. The hand piece is the pen shaped instrument and the keratoplast tip attaches to the end of this hand piece and emits the radio frequency energy.
How do I know if I am a candidate for CK?
Most candidates are generally over the age of 40 and use reading glasses. Patient’s prescriptions should be stable for one year prior to CK and have not had previous eye surgery. During your free consultation you will learn about CK and whether or not you are a candidate.

WaveFront Mapping technology is a tremendous breakthrough in laser vision correction and has the ability to produce better visual results than traditional LASIK laser vision correction.
“Before I had LASIK surgery at Boothe Eye Care & Laser Center I was almost legally blind. Now my vision is 20/15. Dr. Boothe really did a wonderful job with my eyes."
“As a volleyball player during college, contacts really did a number on my eyes. By the end of a long practice my eyes would be really tired causing my eyesight to become blurry. As a result my game suffered, Thanks to LASIK my game has improved miraculously. LASIK has been the most wonderful thing I have ever done for myself.”
