Purpose: Evaluation of the participation of the aberrations in the determinism of ocular predominance Methods: This is exploratory study have began in February 2003 with the Department of Ophthalmology of the university hospital of Bordeaux (France). The Patients are candidates for a refractive surgery and don’t present an amblyopia or criteria supporting an amblyopia and having transparent ocular mediums. The study of the ocular aberrations is performed with LADARwave (Alcon). The preferential eye is determined by the method of Crider ("the process of the hole") Results: 50 patients was included and studied. It does not appear a statistically significant difference at the time of the comparison of the sums of the aberrations between the dominating eye and dominated eye. It ‘s in the same way for the study of the aberrations of defocusing, the astigmatism and coma. But, it appears that the other high orders aberrations are statistically higher in the dominant eyes than dominated. Conclusions: Until then considered, like disturbing the quality of vision, the high orders aberrations seem being able to have a "beneficial" role on the vision, or to influence the determinism of ocular predominance. We can think, with these results, that a certain degree of aberration could be essential with the quality of vision, and if one would not have to preserve these aberrations at the time of "customized" refractive corneal surgeries
