What Are Long-Term Laser Eye Surgery Results?

Laser Eye Surgery procedures are highly effective and very precise. Here, you can see our latest Laser Eye Surgery results.

The modern laser technique has been used for the last 20 years, first developed by Barraquer in 1950’s, and today more than 17 million people have undergone the laser eye surgery procedure worldwide. Scientific researchers, who track LASIK complications, believe there are probably no significant negative long-term effects from laser surgery.

It is important, however, to note that the permanence of the change in your cornea means that Laser Eye Surgery results are life-long. Laser Eye Surgery cannot stop the natural maturing of the eye through the ageing process and the deterioration of vision, known as Presbyopia. London Vision Clinic have a revolutionary unique solution and can provide a treatment called PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision, reducing the dependency on glasses in later life. PRESBYOND® Laser Blended Vision adjusts the eyes so that one works mainly at distance and the other works mainly up close. The brain combines the two images to create a blended vision allowing one to see both close and far at the same time.

For majority of people the effects of Laser Eye Surgery last a life-time. However, the effects of the treatment may change after 5 – 10 years. If this is the case, usually it is minimal and unnoticeable.  At the London Vision Clinic, we will be examining you at 1 day, 1-3 weeks, 3 months, 12 months and yearly, with plenty of opportunity to assess the progress of Laser Eye Surgery results or to discuss any improvements we can make.

Once your eyes have fully healed it is extremely rare for any complications to arise. If there were going to be any complications, it is usually within the first few months. Hence it being vital your clinic and surgeon provide you with the right level of aftercare support and take time to monitor your progress.
