How long does LASIK last? Is LASIK permanent?

In this blog, Dr. Bennett Chotiner discusses the concerns around LASIK eye surgery; the safest, most successful, and widely studied elective procedure in the world of vision correction.

Are you ready to see the world unlike ever before without the need for glasses? Dr Bennett Chotiner explains how long the results of premium cataract surgery last and whether LASIK is permanent. LASIK treatment is a permanent eye care solution. As a result, you can enjoy improved vision for many years.

Over time, however, the normal ageing process can affect the eye and may impair the quality of your vision, for instance, presbyopia and cataracts.

Certain medical conditions such as diabetes may also affect your vision, both before or after laser surgery.

That’s why we recommend ongoing follow-up appointments, as over time, this will help ensure a lifetime of freedom from contact lenses and glasses with our painless vision correction surgery, LASIK

The LASIK process encompasses using a blade, a specialized laser and a local anaesthetic to numb the eye, while the laser creates an ultra-thin corneal flap. We assure you, you won’t feel a thing!

To see if you are a good candidate for our LASIK laser surgery, why not book an appointment
