Most patients experience a large improvement in their vision the first day after LASIK, usually 20/40 or better. Results depend to a large extent on the patient’s preoperative prescription. In general, patients can expect to regain approximately 90 to 95 percent of their vision in the first two to three days after LASIK. The remainder of their vision will improve gradually over several weeks. Patients with significant astigmatism or who are very nearsighted or farsighted may experience slower sight recovery and stabilization.
Since being approved by the FDA in 1998, nearly 700,000 people undergo LASIK each year. Surgeons have been performing the procedure for over 15 years and over 30 million procedures have been performed worldwide. To date, very few sight-threatening complications have occurred. LASIK is generally a very safe and effective vision correction option for those who qualify.
Most people can return to their normal activities the day after the LASIK procedure, and that includes driving and going to work.
