    Dear friend, I'd like to tell you that the laser eye surgery may not solve your vision problems permanently. As I know, there are some enhancement procedures to help with your vision which means that you may need another surgery too. As to different people, the effects change. I can't tell you how long it will last.

    Once the surgery has been done, as to most people, the distance correction should no longer be needed; as to a few individuals, they may need an enhancement procedure after the initial procedure. However, once the correction is finished, a good result will be obtained at six months or so. It should be very stable for years and decades to most people. Only 5% of the patients may undergo a long term refractive change. I think you need to consult an eye surgeon.

    On average, LASIK eye surgery is considered to be a permanent way to reshape your cornea and thus correct your vision. That%u2019s fairly incredible, given the procedure takes roughly 30 minutes total.

    The entire surgical procedure takes only 10 minutes or less per eye. The actual amount of time the laser is active on the eye is only one minute or less.
