In this lecture we will focus our attention on a specific issue connected with the optical properties of the test masses in ground-based interferometers, namely the presence of optical aberrations that can have a relevant impact on the possibility to operate the detector. The second part will present an overview on the medium- and long-term evolution of terrestrial interferometers.
