It is possible to have as many enhancement surgeries as desired, so long as there is enough tissue to maintain corneal stability.

Although the Lasik flap heals, it is not like a cut on your arm. It is always different. A Lasik flap can be lifted years after initial surgery. "Lifted" is probably not the correct term. It is more like surgically separating the cornea at the location of the original incision.

PRK on the Lasik flap is gaining in popularity and may also be an option.
