How long do the effects of AK last for?

As far as we know the effects are permanent. But, the eyes are subject to change over time so further surgery may be needed.

This procedure cannot guarantee unaided vision: by that we mean, vision without glasses or contact lenses. It can reduce astigmatism but cannot eliminate it completely.

Further surgery in the shape of LASIK is required to achieve perfect eyesight.

What often happens is that the surgeon will carry out AK and then wait for 3 months or so before performing LASIK.
