We asked Dr. Leonard Teye-Botchway in an interview to explain when you can expect to see results from laser eye surgery.
Leonard Teye-Botchway: This variable depends on the type of laser surgery that you get. Also, it differs from patient to patient. One patient’s results may be different from another’s because of the patient’s particular condition.
Refractive laser eye surgery results
With regards to refractive laser eye surgery for eyesight correction, the results are usually almost immediate. Most patients notice the day after that their vision is much better. For others, it may take a few days or a few weeks, but we generally say that it takes up to about three months for the vision to fully stabilise.
I review your eye at specific intervals to ensure that everything is going well. If I feel that there is a problem, I will give you drops or some other form of intervention to correct the issue, but by and large, there isn’t, and you would find that in one week you see much better than you saw before.
