Abstract We report the case of a 46-year-old female patient who was referred to our clinic (Orasis Eye Clinic, Reinach, Switzerland) seeking improvement of her distance and near visual acuity. Radial keratotomy (RK) was performed at a younger age on both eyes to correct -5 D myopia. The patient underwent a bilateral same-session multifocal corneal excimer femtosecond laser (Supracor) keratomileusis correction. We introduce a new correction approach, possibly suitable for presbyopic patients previously treated with RK, and we present several potential novel advantages such as enhanced near, intermediate vision, and improvement in quality of life. This is the first report of a bilateral excimer laser treatment attempt of presbyopia following RK.
