Now, stepping even more into the investigational arena, I also have a keratoconus quadruple procedure. In this approach I combine Intacs and conductive keratoplasty off label in an attempt to reduce astigmatism and flatten the cornea. There are about 30 U.S. surgeons using CK alone or in combination with Intacs for the keratoconus patient. I am one of them. Application of the CK spots is an art, and I do not charge for it. Decades ago, Antonio Gasset, MD, proposed controlled thermal keratoplasty for treating more severe keratoconus, and this current application of CK is a more modern form of thermal keratoplasty. I then follow with CXL 2 to 4 weeks later and in select cases perform a PRK/PTK with MMC 1 year or more later.
