Lasik Refractive Surgery Disrupts The Natural Compensation Of Aberrations In The Eye

PURPOSE

In most young subjects, the aberrations of the cornea are partially compensated by the crystalline lens producing an improved retinal image (Artal et al., Journal of Vision, 1, 1, 2001). Since standard LASIK modifies the higher order aberrations of the cornea, this fine aberration tuning could be disrupted. We explore here how the induced changes of aberrations after LASIK may affect this aberration compensation. The different effects of both myopic and hyperopic LASIK are addressed.
