LASIK eye surgery is capable of providing life-changing vision improvement with a single, painless procedure. Most of our patients are incredibly happy with their final LASIK results. However, in some rare cases, a follow-up procedure may be necessary.
At the Khanna Institute, LASIK patients are covered for post-op exams and revision surgery for one full year. After this time period is over, the cost for a revision procedure can vary from free, to up to $500 per eye. Revision surgery is usually not performed until at least three or four months have passed since your first procedure.
LASIK follow-up procedures are even safer than the initial LASIK surgery, since Dr. Khanna doesn’t need to create a new corneal flap. Instead, he will carefully lift the flap that was made during your first surgery, and apply the revised laser treatment. Healing from LASIK revision surgery will be exactly the same as it was after your first procedure.
After carefully examining your eyes and discussing the results of your LASIK procedure, Dr. Khanna will evaluate whether or not revision surgery is a good idea. You should give your eyes plenty of time to heal. We tend to only recommend LASIK revision if you are left unable to perform important tasks with your new vision.
Below are some of the rare circumstances in which a follow-up procedure would be recommended:
