The development of adaptive optics as an effective means of eliminating irregular distortions, which occur during light propagation through an inhomogeneous medium, using controlled optical elements is described. Many ideas developed in recent years have been suggested quite long ago, but only now, due to the creation of elemental base of optoelectronic systems and devices, they come into use in many fields of science and technology. The current status of adaptive optics systems in solar astronomy is considered; some aspects of their use in distortion correction in high-power laser systems are analyzed. The retrospective analysis of the related studies at V.E. Zuev Institute of Atmospheric Optics, Siberian Branch, Russian Academy of Sciences, is presented.
