Radial keratotomy (RK) is a refractive surgical procedure to correct myopia. The procedure consists of numerous radial incisions which extend from the pupil to the periphery of the cornea in a pattern like the spokes of a wheel. It was discovered by accident by Dr. Svyatoslav Fyodorov who removed glass from the eye of one of his patients who had been in a fight. The patient's eyesight improved after the glass was removed.
