Q If a 2nd treatment is needed, I wanted to confirm that it is indeed OK to wait a year after the 1st treatment.

Ans.    Yes, that is fine. We have even treated few cases, from other clinics, 2-3 years post their LASIK treatment. Like I mentioned, if at all the issue arises in this period, it is that we cannot ‘lift’ the flap, then we do not, but work more superficially with procedure like PRK. This only means a little longer recovery of about 4 days instead of one day post treatment. But the remnant power gets treated.
