Abstract

  • Night vision complaints can complicate corneal photorefractive corrections and are related to the altered corneal optical properties after surgery.

  • Improvement of laser algorithms, energy delivery improvements, and active trackers have significantly improved the optical results of refractive surgery and minimized visual complaints of the treated patients over the last few years.

  • The introduction of wavefront aberrometry in the clinical practice offered a better understanding of the optical results of corneal photorefractive surgery, and may be a useful tool to achieve the socalled supervision in the future.
