Vision change after LASIK

Although some people suggest that LASIK only lasts 10 years, this is not true.  LASIK is considered a permanent procedure.   From the attached prescription, it appears that you still have a refractive error (prescription).  As we age, we are less able to accommodate (focus especially on near objects). If you see well with the attached prescription, this is a good sign.   It is possible that you were able to focus through the prescription that you have and with aging, you are no longer able to do so.  Sometimes eye rubbing can cause astigmatism and warp the cornea over time.   Another option is dry eyes, a pterygium, regression of the treatment to cause progressive blur.  It is best to see your surgeon for his/her assessment and plan.  About 1-3% of patients can benefit from an enhancement can clear the vision.
