Background: Recent advances in ophthalmic evaluation technology allow the measurement and quantification of high-order optical aberrations (HOAs). Several professionals have superior visual function compared to the general population. Objective: This study is to characterize the profile of HOAs in the elite police of the São Paulo military police. Material and Methods: This is an observational clinical study of a case series with 42 eyes of 21 patients. The objective was to compare HOAs between snipers and civilians, through assessments of visual acuity and ocular aberrometry. The patients were divided into two groups: elite and control according to their profession. The elite group had more eyes with visual acuity better than or equal to 20/15. Results: The elite group had slightly lower values of higher order aberrations: 0.26 and 0.29 in the elite group and 0.30 and 0.31 in the control group. It was possible to verify that visual acuity both with and without correction was better in patients in the Elite group, even though high-order aberrations did not present significant differences in the mean. Conclusion: It was possible to verify that visual acuity both with and without correction was better in patients in the Elite group, even though high-order aberrations did not present significant differences in the mean values.
