How long do SMILE or LASIK laser eye surgery results last?

So there’s a misconception out there that any laser surgery only lasts for say 10 years. That’s not true. Laser surgery is a permanent change to your eye and the refraction of your eye. And as long as your eye remains healthy, then those effects don’t wear off. So you’re always at risk of developing other conditions, such as glaucoma or macular degeneration or cataract. Having laser surgery does not change that risk at all and it’s always important to maintain regular eye health checkups once you’ve had laser surgery.
