Physician and attorney Paul M. Silva, MD JD, states: (see http://www.browardbar.org/articles/lasik.php)
Although, surgical results are measured by visual acuity, this is an arcane form of measuring visual potential. Visual acuity is measured in the controlled environment of dark examination room with black letters on a white surface. Real world conditions such as sunlight, glare, shade, reflections, motion affect vision and are not accounted for in a visual acuity measurement. Therefore, a patient may have 20/20 vision in the office and be considered a perfect result, but have difficulty driving a night from glare or halos around light.

We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark. The real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light. -Plato
