Paper Abstract

Radial keratotomy microsurgery is a high-precision procedure for modifying the curvature of the cornea. A novel laser technique, using subsurface energy deposition, is shown to be remarkably effective in accomplishing this procedure and related microsurgeries with negligible collateral damage due to thermal or shock waves.
