The authors realized experimental prospective study of corneal resistance after Radial Keratotomy in rabbits. 13 grey european rabbits were utilized. The surgical technique and instruments were the same in every cases. The cornea's alterations were studied and registred by Tension-Deformation Diagram. The statistics analysis involved the difference between the value of rupture tension of operated eye and no operated eye. At the “t” test for paralel samples, the corneal resistance showed significant reduction after this surgery.
