San Diego-"The pursuit of perfect vision is analogous to the pursuit for the Holy Grail. The Holy Grail is the symbol for a large and mysterious power, closely guarded, concealed, and protected.

Steinert, MD, said when he delivered the Binkhorst Lecture, "The Pursuit of 'Perfect' Vision: Ophthalmology's Holy Grail?" at the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery annual meeting.
