Several techniques of corneal suture have been used to stabilize the induced hyperopia followed by radial keratotomy and decrease the astigmatism. This new technique was performed since 2013 with more than 50 eyes and 75% has improved the visual acuity until 3 vison line. One of the great advantages is that the wire anchored is parallel to the incision, thus maintaining greater stability.
