Many LASIK patients ask if they will ever need to see their optometrist again after their LASIK procedure. After all, most LASIK patients will no longer require glasses or contact lenses. However, while your vision may be 20/20 or better following your LASIK procedure, it is still important to visit your eye doctor once a year for a routine annual checkup to maintain the health of your eyes.
In addition to assessing eyesight and prescribing eye glasses and/or contacts, optometrists are trained to look for eye diseases and conditions that can threaten vision and overall health, including cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration and other eye diseases. Serious eye diseases, such as glaucoma, often have no symptoms at all until permanent vision loss occurs. A yearly visit to your eye doctor is your best defense against possible future debilitating eye diseases.
