  • Abstract
  • Look Inside

I performed radial keratotomy on 565 eyes in 291 patients over a 4-year period until August, 1985. Among this series, there were 141 eyes, 109 patients, having anisometropia of 2.5D or more. All the 109 patients did not tolerate spectacles or contact lenses.

In 77 eyes, 77 patients, radial keratotomy was perfor-med as an unilateral procedure in the more myopic eye. In the other 64 eyes, 32 patients, both eyes were treatedby keratotomy with different amounts of intended correction.

The surgery resulted in reduction of anisometropia in all the 109 cases and enabled them to tolerate glasses.
