RK: Do NOT Try More Surgeries
This post is directed those who’ve lost quality vision due to Radial Keratotomy (RK) surgery. Below, are photos of different eyes that underwent RK surgery and later on went on to lose quality vision and ocular comfort. All of the patients whose eye photos you see here are now wearing scleral lenses. I strongly urge members of this group who have lost vision due to RK surgery to find a doctor experienced with scleral lens technology. In the photos posted below different dyes were used to highlight the corneal defects created by RK surgery. One word of caution: There are a number of corneal surgeons who are promoting additional surgeries to correct the problems created by RK surgery. There is no invasive procedure that will undo the damage the RK surgery created. Additional surgeries will increase the risk to further loss of vision and comfort.
