Numerical calculations recently published [ J. Opt. Soc. Am. A 12, 340 ( 1995)] on the characteristics of modes in optical resonators containing apertures revealed unusual effects regarding modal losses and frequencies. Our attempts to reproduce the numerical calculations for the same configuration parameters did not retrieve these effects. Additional support for the validity of our calculations is presented.
