Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 07 May 2022

Astigmatic keratotomy eye surgery-- or AK-- and the more frequently carried out limbal relaxing laceration, or LRI, surgery are efficient and safe. The cornea of people who have astigmatism is shaped like a football. People with mild glasses or get in touch with lens prescriptions normally have the most success in obtaining normal vision after astigmatic keratotomy eye surgery. People with more extreme astigmatism may still need glasses or get in touch with lenses after astigmatic keratotomy eye surgery. Limbal relaxing laceration eye surgery is a reliable and secure way to fix astigmatism and it's typically used together with other vision correction treatments.
