Is LASIK permanent?

Yes, LASIK is a permanent procedure. LASIK reshapes your cornea, permanently changing the shape of it. After LASIK, most patients live a life that’s free of glasses and contacts for many years!

Why should I consider getting LASIK?

Every year, millions of people decide to get LASIK. Why should you have to continue relying on visual aids to see?

Since the FDA approved LASIK, its popularity has only continued to increase! Patients are excited to finally achieve visual freedom and part with their glasses and contacts.

LASIK is a safe procedure because the technology continues to advance. Many people have had LASIK and continue having it, meaning it’s performed frequently.

It’s no coincidence that it has a 96% success rate with patients that have had the procedure. This is a procedure that has only improved as time has gone on!

Most patients that undergo LASIK are happy with their results and their new vision. If you’re tired of wearing contacts, you aren’t the only one.

More and more, people want to find better ways to see the world around them. LASIK is a perfect solution for this. With contacts, you have a higher chance of developing an infection compared to if you were to have LASIK.

Although LASIK is extremely popular, there are still some people that are skeptical of the procedure. Some do not trust the idea that LASIK is permanent.

They may fear that if they get the procedure, their vision will return to how it was before LASIK. If you get LASIK, the results you experience from it will last for years to come. This improves your life for the better for many years.

Does LASIK prevent future vision changes?

No, LASIK only treats current vision issues like astigmatism, nearsightedness, and farsightedness. It does not prevent your eyes from developing conditions in the future.

This means that even if you have LASIK, you can still develop conditions like glaucoma, cataracts, or presbyopia. These conditions are common and develop as a result of the aging process.

The good news is they are easy to treat with other procedures. In the case of cataracts and presbyopia, if you choose premium lens implants, you can go back to the clear vision you achieved during LASIK.

If you get LASIK in your mid to late twenties, you’ll have decades of clear vision without needing glasses or contacts. That’s pretty close to forever!
