Transepithelial photorefractive keratectomy for the management of hyperopic regression after conductive keratoplasty.

BMJ Case Rep 2021 Apr 28;14(4). Epub 2021 Apr 28.

Ophthalmology Unit, Department of Biomedical Sciences, University Hospital of Messina, Messina, ME, Italy.

Several refractive techniques are available for the treatment of hyperopia. Conductive keratoplasty (CK) is a safe and non-ablative procedure suitable for the treatment of low hyperopia and presbyopia. Due to the high rate of regression, it is not a commonly used technique. Read More

Arteficially induced "monovision" is vitium artis and in reality corresponds with the "Monofixation Syndrome".

Coll Antropol 2013 Apr;37 Suppl 1:107-9

Velika Gorica University of Applied Sciences, Velika Gorica, Croatia.

Monovision is a method, most frequently used, in correction of presbyopia, especially by begining presbyops. These persons want to see well at distance and also for near without the usual changes of eyeglasses correction. Sometimes this method is also applied by myopia and psedophakic eyes (pseudophakic monovision). Read More

[Conductive keratoplasty for presbyopia and two years follow-up].

Zhonghua Yan Ke Za Zhi 2011 Jul;47(7):611-7

Eye Center, Affiliated Second Hospital of Zhejiang University, Hangzhou 310009, China.

Objective: To investigate the effect of conductive keratoplasty (CK) for presbyopia and 2 years follow-up.

Methods: This study is prospective clinical trial. CK was performed on 34 patients for presbyopia, in which 26 hyperopic patients underwent binocular operations and 8 emmetropic patients underwent monocular operation. Read More

Conductive keratoplasty.

Curr Opin Ophthalmol 2007 Jul;18(4):334-7

Department of Ophthalmology, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, NY 10029, USA.

Purpose Of Review: Conductive keratoplasty is a noninvasive, in-office procedure for the correction of hyperopia, hyperopic astigmatism, and management of presbyopia. It serves as an alternative to laser-based refractive surgery with essentially no intraoperative or postoperative complications.

Recent Findings: In the past decade, photorefractive keratectomy and laser in-situ keratomileusis have been the most popular refractive surgical procedures to correct myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. Read More

Optics of conductive keratoplasty: implications for presbyopia management.

Peter S Hersh

Trans Am Ophthalmol Soc 2005 ;103:412-56

Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, UMDNJ-New Jersey Medical School, Newark, New Jersey, USA.

Purpose: To define the corneal optics of conductive keratoplasty (CK) and assess the clinical implications for hyperopia and presbyopia management.

Methods: Four analyses were done. (1) Multifocal effects: In a prospective study of CK, uncorrected visual acuity (UCVA) for a given refractive error in 72 postoperative eyes was compared to control eyes. Read More
