LASIK Surgery More Than Once?

Question: Can you have LASIK surgery more than once?

Answer: If you have LASIK Surgery and at some point in the future your prescription changes necessitating a re-treatment or enhancement, it is possible to do so IF your eyes are otherwise healthy enough in terms of quantity and quality of the tear film, health and integrity of the Cornea especially regarding its thickness and shape AND you do indeed require a meaningful change to your prescription. Depending on how long after you have the primary LASIK procedure you need an enhancement it is often possible to simple lift the flap and apply the laser correction, or if a very long time may require a complete recreation of the flap.
