When you upload your LoRs in ERAS (read details) you have the option to waive your rights to view the LoR which means the attending will write an LoR about you and send it directly to ERAS and you don't see what he/she wrote about you.
It is a sort of adding objectivity to the recommendation as the letter writer will be embarrassed to write something bad about you if he/she knows that you will read it.
