Will My LASIK Results Last?

Will My LASIK Results Last? | Highland, Fishkill, PoughkeepsieLASIK laser eye surgery has helped millions achieve perfect or near-perfect vision since its FDA approval in 1991. Our patients at Seeta Eye Centers often ask how long their LASIK results will last. The good news is that, for the majority of men and women who have LASIK, the vision correction is permanent.

LASIK vs. PRK

Poughkeepsie LASIK and PRK are laser vision treatments that both treat nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. PRK, or photorefractive keratectomy, is the predecessor to LASIK and is still used today. The major difference between PRK and LASIK is that during LASIK surgery, a small flap is created in the cornea in order to reshape the underlying stromal layer, while in PRK surgery, the epithelial layer of the cornea is removed to access the stromal layer.
