One common question we receive here at Griffin and Reed Eye Care from patients considering LASIK eye surgery is will LASIK last forever and will they need a repeat procedure in the future?
The answer depends on each individual. Each patient is different and each case depends on the individual’s prescription, medical history, and age.
LASIK eye surgery corrects your vision at the time of the procedure and we strive for the best possible outcome achievable at that time
However, as we age, our eyes continue to age as well. At some point in our early 40’s, one’s near vision starts to decline and the dependence on reading glasses becomes evident. Additional surgery may be a possibility to treat for reading vision. The best advice is to continue with annual exams to monitor your eye health and to check whether your prescription is changing. Having a stable prescription is important when considering laser vision correction.
