Question ID: 739744
I'd like the names and professonal qualifications of three or more CK
(Conductive Keratoplasty) providers in the Orangevale, California area
(20 miles east of Sacramento), preferrably within 10 miles of zip

Conductive Keratoplasty is a treatment for presbyopia, similar to but
not the same as Lasik (CK uses radio-frequency energy instead of a
laser). References to Lasik providers is not sufficient, unless they
specifically provide CK, too. provides information on CK. provides a good
example of the form of response I'd like (although that response is in
regards to Lasik, not CK).

Hello jcb3-ga,
I managed to find just two doctors 10 miles within zip 95662 who
perform Conductive Keratoplasty - Dr. William Ellis and Dr. Paris Royo
in Roseville. I have included several others who are beyond this area,
including Dr. Gary Kawesch who was voted one of San Jose's Top Doctors
by San Jose Magazine, in case you wish to exlore the possibility of
travelling a bit further.
