What Are the Symptoms of Highly Aberrated Corneas?

In the science of optics, the word “aberrated” means the light rays fail to converge at one focus because of limitations or defects in the eye’s optical system. Higher order aberrations usually manifest as refractive errors that are more complex than common nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.

These aberrations cannot typically be thoroughly resolved with eyeglasses or contact lenses, although some progress has been made in that area. Even so, it can be difficult to resolve specific imperfections and refractive distortions for people who live with what is termed “highly aberrated corneas.” Resolution requires a surgical correction of the eye structure.

Treatment for Highly Aberrated Corneas

All eyes possess some irregularities, but when those aberrations become significant enough to lead to vision difficulties, your best course of action may be an advanced form of LASIK surgery referred to as topography-guided LASIK.

Highly aberrated corneas may result from certain conditions with various medical names, but what they have in common is a distortion of the light that passes through the eye, due to one or more optical components of the eye.

Some of uncomfortable symptoms of a highly aberrated cornea include:

  • Poor night vision
  • Excessive glare
  • Halos around points of light
  • Blurring
  • Starburst patterns
  • Double vision

How much these symptoms impact your vision depends on a combination of factors that often react together to increase the severity of the vision problems.
