LASIK allows your surgeon to permanently re-shape your cornea to improve your vision. Nonetheless, there are a couple of factors to keep in mind.
A very small percentage of patients may undergo a “regression” of the corrective effect of the LASIK surgery. Regression is a loss of the LASIK effect over time due to healing changes in the cornea. Typically a touch-up procedure can be performed in this circumstance to make the vision clear again. At the Eye Treatment Center we are committed to your vision, and we want you to be thrilled with your vision. If it is necessary and safe, during the first year after your LASIK surgery you will be eligible for a free touch-up procedure.
Another factor that may impact your long-term vision result is presbyopia. Presbyopia is a natural stiffening of the crystalline lens in your eye that makes it more difficult to read things that are at a closer distance. This natural process occurs in everyone’s eyes beginning in the early 40’s. Most people are able to treat this problem by wearing reading glasses to see things at a closer distance. Having the LASIK procedure does not prevent presbyopia, nor will it affect its progression over time.
