PMID:  8918128     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The history of a woman who developed diplopia after radial keratotomy is reported. Examination showed that this was the result of the appearance of accommodative esotropia. Some complications of refractive surgery reported in the literature were reviewed. It is the current policy of the U.S. military services to disquality an applicant for entry who has undergone refractive surgery. Based on this review of complications it is argued that this is still the correct policy.
