How long will my vision be good for after I get the procedure? 1 year? 5 years? or forever?

Dear Michael, Most patients enjoy the benefits of laser vision correction for a lifetime. A study published in the Journal of Refractive Surgery followed patients over 12 years after undergoing the procedure and found that "almost 90% of the eyes maintained or improved best corrected visual acuity" (Journal of Refractive Surgery 2006;22:871-877). Only a small percentage of patients ever require an enhancement surgery. During your consultation with the eye physician, the details of the procedure will be discussed and to determine if you are the right candidate for laser vision correction. Dr. Nazemi
