Limbal Relaxing Incision: What Is It?
Limbal relaxing incisions are a surgical technique commonly used to treat astigmatism, a condition which occurs when the cornea, the clear outer surface of the eye, is misshapen and does not allow the eye to focus properly. A cornea with astigmatism can best be described as being shaped like a football, bulging in the middle and tapered to a point on the ends, rather than the basketball-like shape of a perfectly healthy cornea. Limbal relaxing incisions are made around the edges of the misshapen cornea, allowing our Orange County astigmatism correction specialists to flex and reshape the cornea, rounding the tissue and thus improving vision.
