1 April 1986


This paper contains a review of the literature covering history, surgical techniques, results, and postoperative complications of radial keratotomy. Radial keratotomy is a relatively new surgical technique which is used to reduce or eliminate myopia. It is considered to be a controversial surgery because long term safety is not known. This paper gives special attention to postoperative visual acuties and possible long term complications.
