Hi, it’s Matt Russell from VSON Laser Vision Specialists. One of the most common questions I hear is “how long does LASIK eye surgery last?”
Laser-assisted in situ keratomileuses (LASIK) is a surgical procedure that can improve your vision so you no longer depend on glasses and contact lenses to see. It permanently reshapes the tissue in the front of your eye, and these changes last your whole life.
However, most people’s vision gets worse over time due to the natural ageing process. LASIK can’t prevent this, so your vision may become blurry again as you get older and develop presbyopia or cataracts.
How long these changes occur after your LASIK procedure will depend on your age, when you had the LASIK surgery and if you have any other progressive eye conditions.
It is usually possible to undergo further surgeries to correct your vision if these changes occur.
