What Is the Success Rate of LASIK Eye Surgery?

LASIK vision correction has revolutionized the way we approach eye care, rapidly gaining popularity as a safe and effective solution for vision improvement. Recent studies show an increasing number of people are choosing LASIK for the convenience it offers over prescription eyewear, with many achieving vision of 20/20 or even better after surgery. But what percentage of people actually enjoy clearer vision after LASIK eye surgery? And are there ways to improve your chances of a successful outcome?

20/20 Institute’s Approach

The success rate of LASIK eye surgery depends on several factors, not the least of which is where you choose to have the procedure performed. Some LASIK providers prioritize the volume of procedures they perform. This may result in impressive numbers, but it doesn’t translate to the best results. At 20/20 Institute, we make it a priority to provide the most effective solutions for each person in our care. We don’t track success by how many people we can get through our doors. We track patient satisfaction.

As a local, independent, and doctor-owned LASIK provider, we understand that each eye is as unique as the patient. That’s why we don’t just offer LASIK, we offer a personalized vision correction journey. Our careful and thoughtful process starts with a thorough assessment of your LASIK candidacy to ensure it’s the right procedure for your needs. (And if you’re not a candidate for LASIK? Not to worry. Our experienced eye surgeon offers the alternative treatment options  ICLs—which can help reduce your dependency on glasses and contact lenses—and Monovision LASIK—which offers treatment for presbyopia for those over 40 struggling with near sight for reading.)

If you are considering LASIK vision correction in Denver, call 303-202-0669 to schedule your FREE LASIK evaluation at 20/20 Institute today. We maintain three metro-area offices for optimal convenience, and welcome patients from all areas of the state.

How Effective Is LASIK?

Recent data suggests that 99% of patients who undergo LASIK in America achieve at least 20/40 vision. Slightly over 90% of LASIK patients attain 20/20 vision or better​​. It is important to note, however, that while 20/40 vision can reduce your dependence on glasses and contact lenses, you will likely need glasses for many visual functions throughout your day.

Not everyone who undergoes LASIK achieves crystal clear vision, but the procedure still boasts an impressive patient satisfaction rate. Statistics continue to show an overall satisfaction rate exceeding 96%, even when 20/20 vision is not the result. In one specific study, focusing on physicians who had LASIK, the satisfaction rate stood at 98.3%, with close to 97% willing to undergo the procedure again​​. It is very important to note, however, that these studies were conducted on individuals who had undergone Custom Wavefront® LASIK. Technology plays a key role in overall patient satisfaction.

Clearly, many people both benefit from and are happy to have undergone LASIK vision correction; but why doesn’t everyone obtain 20/20 vision or better? If a LASIK provider overlooks important candidacy and care requirements in favor of boosting the number of procedures performed, patients who should not have received Lasik, do not achieve 20/20 vision or better because it was never likely for them with this treatment.

At 20/20 Institute, we do things differently. That’s why more of our patients achieve 20/20 vision or better when compared to the national average.

20/20 Institute’s LASIK Vision Correction Success Rate

The experienced LASIK eye surgeon at 20/20 Institute takes pride in our exceptional success rate—a direct reflection of our unwavering commitment to excellence in LASIK vision correction. In fact, 99.67% of our patients have achieved 20/20 vision or better following their LASIK procedure*. None of our competitors can make that same claim.

As a local, independent, doctor-owned-and-operated practice, we are free to set our own standards and make our own candidacy protocols without pressure from non-doctor ownership. These include prioritizing patient safety and satisfaction, utilizing the most advanced technology, and personalizing every single procedure—without compromise. During your FREE LASIK consultation, we would be happy to answer any questions about our approach and success rate as we help you determine which vision correction surgery will best meet your needs.

Factors Contributing to Our Success

One of the biggest factors contributing to the success of LASIK at 20/20 Institute is our insistence on thoroughly evaluating patient candidacy. LASIK is a remarkable vision correction solution, but it is not the best solution for every need. By prioritizing patient safety and satisfaction, we work to ensure only those who can truly benefit from the procedure are considered.

In addition to careful candidate selection, factors that contribute to our patient satisfaction rate include:

  • Advanced Technology. We offer 100% bladeless LASIK procedures with Wavefront Optimized® technology. The technology we have selected plays a direct role in the visual outcomes we can achieve.
  • Patient-Centered Approach. Recognizing that each patient is unique, we offer comprehensive evaluations and personalized treatment plans. This ensures that we take into account patient medical histories and tailor each procedure to meet individual vision goals.
  • Commitment to Transparency. Our commitment to transparency is reflected in our willingness to openly share our surgical outcomes and results. We believe in providing our patients with all the information they need to make informed decisions about their eye care.

At 20/20 Institute, you are not just another patient, you are a unique individual deserving of the most appropriate care. By taking the time to understand what matters most to you, we can craft your vision correction experience to meet your specific needs and desires.
