I was -6.00 diopter in nearsightness. After surgery I was 20/20. Starting in 6th year, my nearsightness returned. I have lost about 1/3 of my vision correction in the last 5 years and require eyeglasses to drive at night. So my point is while the surgery is permanent, the vision correction is not. And anyone having this surgery needs to realize this.
They'll tell you only a small percentage experience cornea regression. But the reality is everyone will lose some vision correction over time. Personally, I think the collagen strands in the cornea, which are cut with the laser, eventually grow back and force the cornea back to it's original shape. But most in the industry are in denial of this fact, because Lasik is a multi billion dollar industry. So let's not ruin a good thing $$$$$$$$$
