How Long Do the Results From LASIK Last?
Many people find LASIK to be an appealing alternative to contact lenses or glasses. This advanced procedure changes the shape of your cornea so that light entering the eye is correctly focused on the retina. LASIK is used as a treatment for nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, and has been performed for countless people in Northwest Arkansas.
So, how long do LASIK results last, and what are the chances that your vision will change after surgery? As with any surgery each body heals at an individual pace, but LASIK results are consistently effective and proven to improve vision long term.

What goes into LASIK?
LASIK corrects common vision problems by changing the shape of the cornea. It usually involves creating a small flap using high-quality laser technology. Vold Vision is proud to offer the Zeiss VisuMax Laser with a SMART bed feature, an intuitive technology that moves with the patient during treatment and offers the highest level of precision possible. We also offer many other options that achieve the same goal for a variety of vision errors - to reduce or eliminate dependency on contacts, glasses, readers or bifocals.
Will my vision change after surgery?
While the results for LASIK are consistently enjoyed long term, LASIK will not prevent age-related changes to the eyes. You may experience presbyopia (the need for reading glasses) or develop cataracts years after LASIK.
Presbyopia is common in patients over 40 years of age and can be corrected with one of our premium lens procedures such as CLE with the Pan Optix (R) lens in Fayetteville, Rogers, Bentonville, or Springdale, AR.
What are the chances that I will need another LASIK procedure?
It is rare for patients to need additional corrective treatment after LASIK. This depends on factors like the severity of your vision problems and how well your eyes healed from the primary procedure. We offer free enhancement procedures during your post op recovery period to give you the peace of mind that if you were to experience any rare over or under-healing, a simple touchup laser enhancement can help ensure the best possible outcome. Vold Vision can provide more information about this possibility during an eye assessment.
Should I read LASIK reviews online?
If you're considering LASIK or another laser eye procedure, it's important to get as much information as possible. One way to accomplish this is by reading LASIK reviews online. LASIK reviews can give you an idea of what to expect from the surgery and what results other patients at Vold Vision have experienced. We encourage you to browse our website and read patient testimonials to see first-hand accounts here.
