      Radial keratotomy for myopia intends to produce a controlled ectasia in which the corneal steepening occurs paracentrally with concomitant central flattening 13; hexagonal keratotomy for hyperopia attempted to create central corneal steepening 14; and hyperopic ALK, with a similar biomechanical concept, aims to produce a controlled central Cited by: Kershner RM. “Keratolenticuloplasty - Arcuate Keratotomy for Cataract Surgery and Astigmatism.” Journal of Cataract and Refractive Surgery ;21(3) Kershner, RM. “Clear Corneal Cataract Surgery and the Correction of Myopia, Hyperopia and Astigmatism.”.

    Eyes with high topographic astigmatism but low refractive cylinder before PRK showed an average of +/- D change in refractive cylinder after PRK. Refractive astigmatism of more than D was induced in 16 eyes (44%) that received manual removal of epithelium versus 15 eyes (24%) that received laser removal of epithelium (odds ratio. Astigmatic Keratotomy is a surgical technique used to correct regular astigmatism (that is not pathologic like keratoconus). It consists in creating small curved incisionsin the peripheral cornea portions, with a pre-calibrated diamond scalpel. Astigmatic Keratotomy can achieve great results with regular Astigmatism, when the goal is saving the central portion [ ].

Astigmatism occurs when light is bent differently depending on. where it strikes the cornea and passes through the eyeball.

Astigmatic keratotomy, or AK, is a subcategory of radial kerototomy. Although AK is a safe and effective form of refractive surgery, in recent years the procedure has been largely replaced by LASIK.

Refractive Keratotomy for Myopia and Astigmatism represents an effort to assemble detailed information on the exciting and controversial area of radial and astigmatic keratotomy.

The book is divided into seven sections. Section 1, devoted to defining the condition of myopia including corneal optics and topography, is comprehensive and relevant to any corneal : Harry R. Koster. Astigmatic keratotomy eye surgery corrects astigmatism by making one or two incisions at the steepest part of the cornea.

These incisions cause the cornea to relax and take a more rounded shape. "It restores your eyesight and renders spectacles useless," he claims(1) L.J. Lans, of The Netherlands, enunciates the basic principles of keratotomy.(1) The history of refractive surgery.

Changes in astigmatism were analyzed as follows: magnitude of astigmatism without regard to axis, 18 surgically induced refractive change (SIRC) using the calculation methods proposed by Holladay and coauthors, 23 and modified polar plot of change in astigmatism.

The procedure is fast, taking between 10 and 15 minutes per eye, like LASIK in the modern era. Results of femtosecond based intrastromal astigmatic keratotomy have been reported to be encouraging for correction of Astigmatism.

RK involved making radial cuts from around the pupillary zone to periphery of the cornea. Astigmatic keratotomy (AK) is a procedure for reducing astigmatism by reshaping the cornea from an oval shape into a more spherical is an elective procedure since it is not always necessary and not urgent.

When AK is successful, patients may not need to wear eyeglasses or contact lenses again. Excimer laser refractive surgery for myopia works by removing corneal stroma to lessen the refractive power of the cornea and to bring the image of a viewed object into focus onto the retina.

Hundreds of thousands of patients have undergone radial keratotomy (RK) for the correction of myopia since its introduction in the s. Other refractive procedures have largely supplanted RK, and it is now rarely performed. Although the rate of complications from RK is difficult to ascertain, Salz performed a review of eyes from the Prospective Evaluation of Radial Keratotomy (PERK.
