Question: How Many Times Can You Lasik?

This will need to be done at least two times, three months apart, to ensure that the eyes are not changing again.

Can you have Lasik more than once?

However, due to the natural aging process of the eye the effects of this permanent procedure may change, and even reduce, over time. Which begs the question: is it possible to have laser eye surgery more than once? In short, the answer is yes, but it’s not quite that simple.

How often does Lasik need to be redone?

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.

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 many years does Lasik last?

Long-Lasting Results

Prospective patients often ask me, “after successful LASIK, how long will the results last?” The answer for most people is years or even decades. However, there are some exceptions to the rule. Approximately 5 percent of patients develop small changes in their eyes that require a second procedure.
