Several types of visual imperfections, referred to as lower- and higher-order aberrations, can exist within the same eye and affect both visual acuity and the quality of vision. Lower-order aberrations, like nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, contribute to approximately 80% of refractive errors. They affect how MUCH you see. Higher-order aberrations account for the remaining 20% of error and affect how WELL you see. They can be compared to smudges or spots on your glasses and have been linked to starbursts, halos and glare that cause vision problems at night. In the past, higher-order aberrations have not been treatable by conventional laser vision correction. But now, H Rubin Laser Eye Centers offers CustomVue LASIK and Wavefront technology which allows us to correct these higher-order aberrations.
