How Often Do I Need Eye Exams After LASIK Surgery?
Vision is a wonderful gift that defines our relationship with the world. Preventative care is an easy and inexpensive measure that is important and worth the effort.
At Kugler Vision, we recommend yearly follow-up eye exams after LASIK Surgery. Eye exams can lead to early detection of a wide variety of age-related vision conditions, as well as general medical problems such as diabetes or hypertension. We want what is best for you, which is maintaining your ocular health and good vision!
One example of an age-related eye condition is Dysfunctional Lens Syndrome (DLS), which occurs in 100% of people in their early 40’s, whether they have had LASIK or not. DLS is part of the natural aging process and is treatable. Kugler Vision specializes in solutions for DLS, so yearly exams are important for detection of this and other treatable conditions.
