Astigmatic Keratotomy (AK) and Limbal Relaxing Incisions

 Astigmatic Keratotomy | Limbal Relaxing Incision | Philadelphia | MarltonAstigmatic Keratotomy and Limbal Relaxing Incisions use small incisions to treat astigmatism. In astigmatic keratotomy, or AK, small arc-like incisions are made to cause the cornea to assume a more normal, rounded shape. AK is often combined with cataract or refractive lens surgery to obtain a better final visual result.

The procedures are fast and pain free, and are done in our refractive suite. Post-operative care involves using antibiotic and anti-inflammatory eye drops for about 5 days after the procedure. A refractive evaluation would need to be done to determine whether you are a good candidate for these incisional procedures.
