What is AK (astigmatic keratotomy)?

0

Astigmatic keratotomy, or AK, is a refractive surgery procedure that addresses astigmatism. During the procedure, the surgeon makes strategic incisions on the patient’s misshapen cornea, making it more spherical and minimizing the effects of astigmatism. AK can be performed in conjunction with other refractive procedures.
