How Long Do The Effects Of LASIK Eye Surgery Last?

How Long Do The Effects Of LASIK Eye Surgery Last?

One of the most frequently asked questions by patients at The Laser Center of Coral Gables is about the permanence of Lasik surgery. The answer is that in the vast majority of cases, the results of LASIK eye surgery are permanent, allowing patients to enjoy all the benefits of relatively perfect vision.

Certain factors can, however compromise the results of LASIK surgery, which is why it is important to answer all your doctor’s questions to find out if you are a suitable candidate. One of the most important factors is the stability of your vision itself. Surgeons can correct your exact prescription at the time of the surgery, but if your eyes have been steadily getting worse over the years rather than remaining stable, they may continue to deteriorate after the surgery. This is because the surgery corrects the changes that have occurred in the lens, but cannot cure the condition behind deteriorating eyesight.

For most candidates who have been studied for post-LASIK eyesight degeneration, however, any changes in eyesight have been fairly minor and have not resulted in the need for glasses or contact lenses. Any more significant changes in eyesight are usually dealt with by the surgeons themselves in a follow-up LASIK procedure. Laser surgery clinics are so confident in the results that this procedure is usually free to any patient requiring it.
