Refractec was founded in 1993 to develop and market proprietary technology that would help baby boomers improve their near vision. The result is the NearVision CK: a safe, non-laser vision-correction procedure that is allowing patients to end their frustration with reading glasses. Using the first FDA-approved technology for patients who are presbyopic and hyperopic, physicians have performed over 150,000 treatments, and in the process, are helping patients “see young again.”
- NearVision CK applies radio waves in a circular pattern on the outer cornea to shrink small areas of collagen. This shrinking pattern creates a constrictive band (like the tightening of a belt) increasing the overall curvature of the cornea to bring near vision back into focus.
- The ViewPoint CK System is compact and portable, allowing procedures to be performed in-office. The treatment takes about three minutes, and since the ViewPoint CK System can be acquired for a fraction of the cost of laser surgery or other refractive equipment, it is an affordable addition to any successful practice.
OptiPoint Corneal Template
The OptiPoint Corneal Template is designed to make it easier for surgeons to perform NearVision CK and achieve more consistent and accurate:
- Centration of treatment
- Spot placement
- Surgical technique
The template also provides accurate corneal marking and Keratoplast tip application for the NearVision CK treatment. By using the OptiPoint Corneal Template, both new and experienced surgeons can more easily make NearVision CK a valuable part of the presbyopic practice.
