How long do the effects of LTK last for?

The one disadvantage to this procedure is the fact that the results don’t last that long. Eye surgeons are aware of this and tend to ‘over-correct’ your eyes: by this we mean that he/she will compensate for this regression by correcting your eyes more than they need to.

This over-correction may mean that you have some degree of short-sightedness. You may have to wear glasses or contact lenses for the first few weeks as a result of this.

You will find that your vision will start to regress in the first 2 to 3 months following surgery, and then, at a much slower rate over the next couple of years.

However, some studies have shown that the effects can last much longer than that. In some cases they can last for 5 even 10 years.

But, this is still seen as a temporary procedure only.
