surgery was introduced by Russians. In this radial cuts are made on the
cornea which flattens the cornea on healing, reducing the myopia. The
surgery is basically a cosmetic surgery.
Good for myopia upto 6 dioptres.
Risks and complications
Glare on looking at light source.
Under or over correction.
Fluctuation in vision lasts for few months.
Rupture of cornea: The scars get healed but make the cornea weak and the cornea perforates easily after injury. So must be avoided in persons involved in sports like boxing & Security personals etc.
