Medicina (Kaunas) 2022 May 23;58(5). Epub 2022 May 23.

Department of Ophthalmology, Hospital in Zgorzelec, 59-900 Zgorzelec, Poland.

Radial keratotomy was a popular surgical procedure used to treat myopia. Patients who underwent radial keratotomy several years ago, are currently reporting to the ophthalmologist due to worsening of vision associated with age-related cataracts. In this case report we present a case of a 60-year-old woman who underwent radial keratotomy with 16 incisions in the right eye and 12 incisions in the left eye. Read More

Biology of keratorefractive surgery- PRK, PTK, LASIK, SMILE, inlays and other refractive procedures.

Steven E Wilson

Exp Eye Res 2020 09 10;198:108136. Epub 2020 Jul 10.

Cole Eye Institute, I-32, Cleveland Clinic, 9500, Euclid Ave, Cleveland, OH, United States. Electronic address:

The outcomes of refractive surgical procedures to improve uncorrected vision in patients-including photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), laser in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK), Small Incision Lenticule Extraction (SMILE) and corneal inlay procedures-is in large part determined by the corneal wound healing response after surgery. The wound healing response varies depending on the type of surgery, the level of intended correction of refractive error, the post-operative inflammatory response, generation of opacity producing myofibroblasts and likely poorly understood genetic factors. This article details what is known about these specific wound healing responses that include apoptosis of keratocytes and myofibroblasts, mitosis of corneal fibroblasts and myofibroblast precursors, the development of myofibroblasts from keratocyte-derived corneal fibroblasts and bone marrow-derived fibrocytes, deposition of disordered extracellular matrix by corneal fibroblasts and myofibroblasts, healing of the epithelial injury, and regeneration of the epithelial basement membrane.

[Photorefractive Keratectomy (PRK) as a Procedure for Correction of Residual Refractive Errors after Radial Keratotomy].

Klin Monbl Augenheilkd 2020 Aug 2;237(8):961-967. Epub 2019 Jul 2.

Ophthalmology, St. Petka Eye Clinic, Varna, Bulgaria.

Background: A large number of myopic patients were treated by radial keratotomy (RK) in recent years. Despite being effective in many cases, the refractive results of this surgical intervention proved to be of limited predictability, and it frequently resulted in over- or under-correction in the long term. In this study, we discuss the intermediate and long-term results of a topography-guided photorefractive keratotomy (PRK) in a consecutive series of patients who were previously treated for myopia by radial keratotomy.

Biomechanical Simulation of Stress Concentration and Intraocular Pressure in Corneas Subjected to Myopic Refractive Surgical Procedures.

Sci Rep 2017 10 24;7(1):13906. Epub 2017 Oct 24.

Department of Mechanical Engineering, National Taiwan University, 10617, Taipei, Taiwan.

Recent advances in the analysis of corneal biomechanical properties remain difficult to predict the structural stability before and after refractive surgery. In this regard, we applied the finite element method (FEM) to determine the roles of the Bowman's membrane, stroma, and Descemet's membrane in the hoop stresses of cornea, under tension (physiological) and bending (nonphysiological), for patients who undergo radial keratotomy (RK), photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK), or small incision lenticule extraction (SMILE). The stress concentration maps, potential creak zones, and potential errors in intraocular pressure (IOP) measurements were further determined. Read More

Implantation of a Multifocal Toric Intraocular Lens after Radial Keratotomy and Cross-Linking with Hyperopia and Astigmatism Residues: A Case Report.

Case Rep Ophthalmol 2017 May-Aug;8(2):440-445. Epub 2017 Aug 29.

Institute of Ophthalmology, Department of Surgical Sciences, University of Turin, Turin, Italy.

Radial keratotomy is a refractive surgical technique, widely used in the 80s and early 90s to correct myopia and astigmatism, but now overcome by more recent laser techniques. Important consequences, often in patients with more than 45 years of age, are progressive hyperopic shift and/or an increase in corneal astigmatism, whose main cause seems to be an increase in the curvature radius of the central portion of the cornea. This seems to be due to radial keratotomy incisions - with the consequent need for cross-linking - intraocular pressure, and corneal biomechanical parameters. Read More
