Cannot see in short distance after a LASIK surgery. Is this normal?

Loss of near vision after LASIK
If I had to venture a guess, I imagine that you are over 40 (and presbyopia which means you start losing the ability to see things up close with age) and you had your LASIK redone because they left a little myopia and you weren't perfect at distance.
No question about it, LASIK cannot give you all ranges of vision over the age of 40. Getting those ranges would entail another surgery: refractive lens exchange with presbyopia lens to give you the range you are looking for.
