Hi, it’s Matt Russell from VSON Laser Vision Specialists. Some people wonder how many times you can have LASIK eye surgery. In this video, I’ll tell you.
LASIK is a permanent surgical procedure that alters the shape of your cornea to help you see more clearly without glasses or contact lenses. In some cases, you may need a secondary or enhancement surgery after an initial LASIK procedure. In general, there is no limit on how many LASIK procedures you can get in your lifetime.
Several factors affect whether or not you are a good candidate for enhancement surgery. The thickness of the cornea is one of the main determinations regarding the safety of multiple LASIK surgeries.
Other health considerations and personal factors will need to be assessed as well. For example, as you age, your eyes will change, which can cause the prescription and correction made by an initial LASIK surgery to be altered. This can impact vision clarity and may be a factor in considering a secondary LASIK surgery to correct it.
There are risks with multiple surgical procedures, and it may not be the best option for everyone. Your ophthalmologist can help you to determine whether or not LASIK enhancement is safe and optimal for you.
