What are the Long-Term LASIK Eye Surgery Results?
LASIK often provides long-lasting vision correction. However, it’s important to note that the aging process can affect your eyes, and you may require reading glasses as you get older (presbyopia).
LASIK has a high success rate and has improved the vision and quality of life for millions of people worldwide. However, outcomes can vary depending on individual factors, so it’s essential to have realistic expectations and follow your surgeon’s recommendations for a successful LASIK experience.
LASIK is a precise surgical procedure that aims to correct these vision problems by reshaping the cornea, thereby improving the eye’s ability to focus light accurately.
While LASIK eye surgery is a long-term vision correction solution, a small percentage of patients require a re-treatment after their initial procedure. This is also known as a LASIK enhancement or touch-up procedure.
LASIK enhancements, also known as touch-up or retreatment procedures, involve making additional adjustments to the cornea to refine the vision correction achieved during the initial LASIK surgery. The procedure is similar to the original LASIK surgery, but the adjustments are tailored to address the specific changes in the patient’s vision.
To provide assurance and peace of mind to patients, we require our LASIK network to offer lifetime enhancement programs. These programs cover the cost of any necessary enhancements, allowing patients to undergo additional procedures if their vision changes significantly over time. This commitment to ongoing care underscores the dedication of LASIK providers to ensuring their patients maintain optimal vision throughout their lives.
We encourage you to ask a trusted LASIK network doctor about enhancement options during your free consultation.
