Trends in BOTOX® for LASIK Patients


“The increasing trend of requests for BOTOX® from LASIK patients is not terribly surprising,” noted Greg Hofeldt, M.D., a Massachusetts Cosmetic Eye Plastic Surgeon at Center for Sight in Fall River, MA. “As the average age of LASIK patients has drifted upward into the late 30’s, early 40’s and even late 40’s-so has the interest in BOTOX®. When LASIK Surgeons successfully help patients reduce or even eliminate their dependence on eyeglasses-they tend to see themselves differently.”

“When my LASIK patients are seeing well without having their facial features “framed” by eyeglasses they often remark that they never noticed so many of the fine lines and wrinkles,” commented Massachusetts LASIK Surgeon & Corneal Specialist Keegan Johnson, M.D. of Center for Sight. “I am happy to schedule them to see Dr. Hofeldt to discuss their areas of concern,” said Dr. Johnson.

Laser Eye Surgery such as LASIK is a method of vision correction that can help patients who are nearsighted, farsighted or who have astigmatism, become less dependent on or even eliminate the need to wear eyeglasses and contact to see at distance. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a type of non-surgical treatment that can be used to smooth fine lines and wrinkles. In order to determine if you are a candidate for LASIK Surgery or BOTOX®, or both, it is important to find a top LASIK Surgeon and an experienced BOTOX® physician and schedule an appointment.
