LASIK Enhancements-Can I have LASIK Again?

Question: I have had LASIK surgery before, now I am having trouble seeing again, can I have LASIK again?

Answer: In order to know whether you can have a LASIK enhancement many things must be considered. First, what was the original attempted correction in terms of power and depth, the health, thickness and shape of your corneas and stability of your prescription. It might be important to know the type of treatment you actually had such as Custom Wavefront LASIK and how long ago you had it. This information will be of use to a LASIK surgeon who evaluates the current status of your vision and eye health. It is important to determine whether your current decrease in vision is actually due to a refractive error such as nearsightedness, farsightedness or astigmatism or some other eye condition or problem. Your next step is to schedule a consultation with the best LASIK Surgeon in your area and provide as much background about your previous treatment history, eye health and vision as possible. From this information and a thorough consultation it will be possible to determine whether a LASIK enhancement is necessary and a good course of treatment for your vision correction.
