Lasik Surgery

Vision after LASIK Surgery

LASIK Surgery improves the uncorrected vision, that is your vision without wearing corrective lenses. Over 90% of LASIK Surgery patients with low to moderate myopia will achive 20/40 vision. Over half of all patients can expect to achieve 20/20 vision or better. However, there are no guarantees that you will have perfect vision and results will depend on your circumstances.

Patients need to understand that their vision after LASIK Surgery may be different to their vision with corrective lenses. Some people describe the images they see after LASIK Surgery as not being as “crisp” as those seen through glasses.

Most patients who have LASIK Surgery do not need to wear corrective lenses (glasses or contact lenses) for their daily activities. However, patients may need to wear reading glasses if they are over the age of 40. This is caused by the normal aging of the eye and occurs with or without LASIK Surgery.

LASIK Surgery is a surgical procedure that permanently removes corneal tissue to reshape the eye in order to improve refraction. The physical results are permanent. However, you should be aware that since the eyes can still change with time, and LASIK Surgery does not affect a number of visual conditions associated with age.
