If you are among the millions considering Lasik eye surgery, then you obviously have questions. The top one is probably, how long does Lasik last? The answer is pretty straightforward, but there are some things you should know.

How long does Lasik eye surgery last on average

For most people this procedure is a life changer. The results can last decades or years. Sometimes, a person needs another procedure to fine-tune the results. These changes can happen a few months after the treatment, or it may take years for changes to occur. For others, this procedure lasts until middle age.


During middle age, the eyes change. People with trouble seeing far away may now have trouble seeing things close up. Nothing can stop this change. However, Lasik specialists can perform a quick fix to adjust the Lasik results for long-term visual acuity.


Cataracts can cause problems, but the changes are in a different part of the eye. Lasik is still preferable over glasses and contacts because of the long-term cost and aggravation.
