Abstract

Standard refractive surgery (photorefractive keratectomy and laser in situ keratomileusis) induces optical changes in the wavefront aberrations of the eye. Higher-order optical changes are induced, especially spherical aberration and coma. Wavefront sensing performed after refractive surgery has revealed a decrease in low-contrast acuity and contrast sensitivity, comprising the patient's night vision and leading to symptoms such as halos, starburst, and glare.
