Can radial keratotomy be done again to correct "middle aged eyes"?

In brief: No

Radial keratotomy to begin with is now obselete and has been superseded by laser treatment (lasik, prk).
You would like to have a procedure to re-establish the elasticity of your natural lens to allow near and far focus. Sorry but as part of the aging process, this function is lost. So radial keratotomy or laser treatment will not do this for you.
