Keratomileusis is now used to correct myopic, hyperopic, and aphakic refractive errors. Currently, this technique can correct only spherical ametropias. We have developed a modification of the Barraquer cryolathing procedure which lathes cylindrical power in a spherical lamellar button. Using this technique, we have been able to induce cylinder in an experimental rabbit model of keratomileusis.
