It is no secret that
LASIK eye surgery is a life-changing procedure. And it shouldn’t be a
secret that in some cases, additional enhancements are needed in order
for the patient to receive optimal vision correction.
In most cases, patients can expect great results even if additional enhancements
are needed. According to the Eye Surgery Education Council founded by
members of the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, a
study published in 2008 found that more than 95 percent of the 16 million
LASIK patients were pleased with their vision after the surgery.
One of the main causes that leads to follow-up LASIK enhancements is unsatisfactory
results. Every case is different as you might assume and for some, enhancements
are a necessary stop on their path to optimum results. Key-Whitman addresses
some of your LASIK questions
There are a number of factors to consider when assessing your visual satisfaction
after LASIK. The health and characteristics of your corneas, your age,
and your overall expectations can all affect how pleased you are with
the outcome of the procedure. Nearsitedness, farsitedness, astigmatism,
and the strength of your prescription are also factos to consider, along
with the amount of tears you produce if dry eye occurs after LASIK.
