Wavefront-guided refractive surgery: promise and pitfalls

Article

Refractive surgery in the next few years will be dominated by the intellectually and, we hope, clinically exciting introduction of wavefront-guided surgery. Both from the viewpoint of improving our current results and for the treatment of the patient suffering adverse optical sequelae after LASIK, wavefront technology offers a novel and promising diagnostic and surgical approach. Indeed, refractive surgery today-borrowing from optics, astronomy, physics, engineering, and biology-represents the ultimate fusion of science, technology, and medicine.
