Why do people become nearsighted after LASIK or receiving a higher glasses prescription?

Thumbnail lasikIt’s not unusual for people who undergo LASIK to become nearsighted again after two or three years because you’re changing the structure without changing how the person functions. That’s why even when you’ve fixed it so now they can see from far away, whether with LASIK or glasses, you haven’t changed their system, so whether somebody has had LASIK or you’re giving them an eyeglass power now to see far away, if they continue to over-focus, they will make themselves nearsighted.

Dear Valued Patient,

At Family Eye Care, the health and safety of our patients and employees is our top concern.

Our office has a long-standing practice of disinfecting all areas of our office throughout the day, and all clinic areas are disinfected prior to every patient seen.

As always during the peak of flu season, and with the growing concerns around the Coronavirus, we have taken extra measures to increase frequent cleaning and have provided additional training and precautions to our staff to help keep their health and yours safe.

As a reminder, if you have fallen ill, have traveled abroad, or had close contact with someone who has traveled abroad within the past 14 days and are due to be seen for an appointment, please let our office know. We will be happy to change your appointment to ensure the safety of our patients and staff.

Feel free to contact us with any questions. Thank you.

Family Eye Care Team
