    i need a retouch

    i am 26 and had lasik done 5-6 years ago at the wilmer eye institute. i dont remember my Rx before lasik but without glasses i couldnt recognize faces.

    after lasik my eyes were 20/20. but 6 years later i just had to buy glasses b/c my eyes are now 20/40. what gives? is it common for people who had really bad eye sight to need a retouch?

    i had a stable eye prescription prior to lasik. i am not sure if i should contact my surgeon b/c ive moved to another state.

    my mom is experiencing the same exact problem 6 years later.

    anyone else have this problem?

    Isn't that just the standard time limit for Lasik? I've known that for years and I never had surgery.. Just..rumors.
