If it is any help to you, I have had two Radial Kerototomy (check
spelling) operations and my experience was:
The first op was carried out in 1990 when both eyes were approx
-8. My vision improved immediately to "normal" sight but after about
a month it stablised at about -2 in one eye and -3 in the other.
In 1993 I had another go and again the immediate improvement was
to "normal" sight but again after a month it slipped back to about
-1 and -2.
Would I recommend it? My eyesight is far improved and I don't have
to reach for my spec's before getting out of bed. However, I still
wear glasses most of the time but at least I know that I'm not
helpless without them.
The op is painful but bearable. I had both op's done in Northern
Ireland and the last was done as a day patient!
Check out laser treatment - that has become very popular but I
don't know anything about long term effects.
Best of luck.
