Second Lasik surgery years after first

I had lasik surgery (flap and zap) about 7 years ago. My distance and reading vision has changed over these years. Can I have lasik again? Is there a better alternative? Thank you.

I would imagine if there is enough tissue left they could do Lasik again. I'm not certain though, I would ask your eye surgeon. Also, I don't believe they will correct distance AND reading vision unless you have a different procedure done on each eye. How was your vision initially after the surgery and how much has it regressed since then if you don't mind my asking.

Re: Second Lasik surgery years after first

I had terrible vision before surgery, and required a touch up on one eye about a week after the procedure. Now I have monovision, which is somewhat troublesome, but beats needing reading glasses.

I just have never heard of anyone getting lasik a second time several years after the first, and wondered if anyone has had that experience. Thanks.
