Glasses After LASIK
While LASIK is considered a permanent procedure, it does not prevent future eye injuries or age-related vision changes. Oftentimes, middle-age can cause a condition called presbyopia. Presbyopia is a normal condition of aging eyes and may require reading glasses for small print.
LASIK surgery can correct vision imperfections that have had a stable prescription for a minimum of one year. This can mean that reading glasses may be a necessity even after a LASIK surgery procedure as some conditions may arise after the surgery is performed.
