After LASIK procedure, the vision usually improves to a satisfactory level but in some people, it is not what they desired. Additionally, in some other patients, the vision deteriorates after some time. In such cases, LASIK can be repeated to further improve the vision.

Lasik Enhancement or touch up is a procedure following the original lasik procedure with the goal of further sharpening the vision. This procedure is usually performed when the original Lasik surgery fails to provide the expected visual acuity.

If during a series of follow up visits patient’s vision continues to be blurry, the eye care provider may suggest a touch up procedure is indicated in order to achieve an improved vision.
