"Dr Wilson, professor of ophthalmology,
and director of cornea research at the
Cole Eye Institute in the Cleveland Clinic,
Cleveland Ohio

There are significant limitations, he said,
to the whole principle of custom ablations.
?Wavefront-guided ablations do not treat
all the higher order aberrations and they
induce some postoperative higher order
Every time we do a refractive
procedure whether it is LASEK or PRK or
LASIK, we have some induction of higher
order aberrations and this is true even
with custom ablations.?
Dr Wilson said there are daily
fluctuations in the wavefront aberrations
and aberrations vary with pupil size.
Aberrations, he said, change with age and
variations in aberrations occur with
accommodation. He also pointed out that
wound healing and biomechanical changes
alter aberrations after surgery.
?When you add all of these together,
how can this possibly be a meaningful

"UNDERSTANDING the central processing of
information in the visual system may be the
next great hurdle on the road to super
vision. Lost amid the hype of wavefront
custom ablation is the lack of a strong understanding
of the role of neural processing and
adaptation on visual acuity, according to
Steven E Wilson MD in a debate during the
annual AAO conference."
