How many times can a person have LASIK eye surgery safely?
MAY 06, 2022
The limit for laser surgery has more to do with the thickness of your cornea. Every time surgery is performed, the cornea becomes thinner. The safe amount that can be removed differs with every eye. Your surgeon should be able to determine this for you. Sometimes if the eye is too thin, it still may be possible to perform PRK (surface ablation).
