With modern LASIK, the enhancement rate is 1-2 percent in the first 12 months and then about 1 percent a year after that as patients’ eyes can change with time.
So, for example, 10 years after LASIK, approximately 10 percent of patients may require an enhancement procedure to maintain their excellent vision.
Can you do Lasik multiple times?
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. There are risks with multiple surgical procedures, and it may not be the best option for everyone.

How many Lasik enhancements can be done?
The Bottom Line on LASIK Enhancements
The majority of LASIK patients achieve their vision goals with LASIK: 90 percent get to 20/20 or better vision after the procedure. So, the likelihood you will want a LASIK enhancement is pretty small.
How much does Lasik cost?
While charges for LASIK procedures vary widely by practice and region, the average cost of LASIK is between $1,500 to $3,000 per eye depending on the type of the procedure, surgeon and region of the country. Often extremely low prices of $399 or $695 are very unrealistic and considered bait and switch pricing.
