2nd Lasik?

2nd Lasik?

Postby sued » Thu Sep 18, 2008 7:18 am

Hello,
I had Lasik to correct near sightedness in 2005. I'm now getting more and more far sighted, due to a combination of age (47) and constant computer use for my job.
Is it possible to correct this with another Lasik surgery? Or would the results be temporary?

Dear Sued,

It is usually possible to correct farsightedness with laser vision correction. As one ages, the near vision also diminishes due to aging changes of the eye, known as presbyopia. One becomes unable to read menus in restaurants. This does progress over time but can be corrected by doing one eye for distance vision and one eye for near vision, known as monovision. This may sound odd but many patients do extremely well with this.
