Description
Patients who have had LASIK but develop a change in their prescription over time often think their LASIK has changed or wore off. Typically, this is not the case. Learn from this experienced group of surgeons what the main reasons are for some patients changing after LASIK, how to communicate this to the patient before and after surgery, and how to handle it with non-surgical or surgical options.
