Experience Canterbury Eye Specialists Conductive Keratoplasty (CK) is an exciting new procedure designed to treat farsightedness and presbyopia without using 
a laser.
Surgery for Astigmatism

Astigmatism occurs when the cornea, the window at the front of the eye, is not spherical in shape. This means that light entering the eye is distorted and either glasses or contact lenses are required for clear vision.

If you wish to reduce or eliminate your astigmatism with corneal refractive surgery, the options are laser eye surgery (in some cases) or astigmatic keratotomy. This section provides information about astigmatic keratotomy.
Astigmatic keratotomy can be performed in the consulting suites. Prior to the procedure, we will take very precise measurments of your cornea, including performing corneal mapping or topography.

Anesthesia is provided simply with drops on the eye. During the procedure, incisions are made in your cornea so that the steep areas become flatter and the whole cornea adopts a more spherical shape.
