How long do the results of laser eye surgery last?

Laser eye surgery is still a relatively new concept and so the long-term effects are still something of a mystery; however, experts have estimated that in most cases, the effects of laser eye surgery should last for a lifetime. So far, patients who underwent treatment when it first came out are still largely happy with their treatment and are still benefitting from their surgery. In some cases, patients may have to wear glasses later in life; the vast majority of patients have to wear reading glasses once they reach middle age. The natural ageing of the eyes cannot be prevented so later on in life the effects of the surgery may wear off; however, there is no doubt that the surgery can drastically improve sight.
