Studies show that vision continues to improve following LASIK vision correction for up to a year after the procedure.
LASIK does not always achieve perfect vision immediately and in fact perfect vision is not guaranteed nor should it be expected.
How long after Lasik will blurry vision go away?
Most patients see clearly within 24 hours after vision correction surgery, but others take two to five days to recover. Some patients may experience some blurred vision and fluctuations in their vision for several weeks after LASIK.
Can eyesight get worse after Lasik?
In most cases the improved vision LASIK surgery provides is permanent. But in a limited number of cases — usually due to changes that can occur in the lens inside the eye, with or without LASIK surgery — some nearsightedness, farsightedness and/or astigmatism can return over time, causing blurry vision.
What should I avoid after Lasik?
Recommended Post-LASIK Activity Schedule
- Always avoid rubbing your eyes.
- Avoid staring without lubricating the eyes.
- Avoid watching TV or reading.
- Avoid showering (you may take a bath but avoid getting soap or water in the eyes, showering or bathing before surgery is fine).
- Avoid alcohol consumption.
How long do Halos last after Lasik?
For most patients, the most serious glare and halos after LASIK will last for the first month. There may be fewer problems with glare and halos before that time, especially in the first week or so after surgery.
