AbstractOptometry has a history of taking the lead in correcting the optical defects of the eye. While the primary definition of optometry has changed as the profession has expanded its scope of practice, the secondary definition of optometry has remained unchanged. The second definition of optometry is the use of an optometer. The definition of optometer is any of several objective or subjective devices for measuring the refractive state of the eye. There is no better way of measuring the refractive state of the eye than to measure its wavefront error using state-of-the-art aberrometers. State-of-the-art aberrometry opens doors for new research and clinical applications while creating a new set of issues and opportunities. We will briefly discuss a few in this editorial.
