Abstract

The surgery and healing changes in manifest refraction, spherical aberration, and pupil diameter for a large number of subjects that underwent LASIK refractive surgery were analyzed. The surgery dramatically decreases refractive errors and the correction was maintained throughout the healing process. On the other hand, LASIK refractive surgery dramatically increases the amount of spherical aberration in the human eye. The results show that corrections of large aberration made with customized refractive surgery will be sustained through the healing process.
