Lifetime LASIK Program is our commitment to exceptional care for patients throughout their lifetime. Enrollment is automatic when your initial laser vision correction is completed at Ohio LASIK Centers. It’s that easy! Your optometrist will maintain the appropriate records to determine eligibility.
You will receive your Lifetime LASIK Program passport from Ohio LASIK Centers the day of your procedure. The staff will explain LASIK enhancement eligibility and review the details of the program. The program booklet allows you to easily track your follow-up care and provides you the reassurance of a lifetime of great vision. All eligible enhancements will be preformed at a cost of $399 per eye.
Eligibility for Enhancement
- Initial LASIK treatment, for the correction of myopia, hyperopia and/or astigmatism, was performed at Ohio LASIK Centers
- Prior to your procedure, if your myopic correction is between -0.50 and -12.00 or +0.50 to +5.00 with no greater than 4.00 diopters of astigmatism, and your best corrected acuity was 20/40 or better
- You have completed the course of post-treatment care, including all follow-up visits, as prescribed by your optometrist
- Any refractive condition of 0.75 diopters greater than your targeted outcome that exists or develops after the procedure may be retreated, provided your optometrist agrees that an enhancement is medically safe, appropriate and has a high probability of correcting your vision to at least 20/40. Ohio LASIK Centers medical review board will review any disputed cases.
Exclusions for Enhancement
There are certain exceptions and conditions when additional laser vision correction or enhancements will not be advised and would not be covered under the Lifetime LASIK Program.
- Patients who fail to comply with the guidelines and recommended course of treatment by their optometrist; including annual comprehensive eye exams as previously defined.
- Patients whose affected vision is a result of trauma to the eye.
- Patients with diseases such as diabetes, active autoimmune, and collagen vascular disorders.

- Patients diagnosed with any ocular disease (cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, etc.) which would compromise a successful retreatment.
- Patients seeking an enhancement as a result of presbyopia (a normal aging process in which the muscles controlling the lens of the eye lose their elasticity).
- Patients who develop drug induced myopia.
- Patients who develop myopia as a result of pregnancy or nursing; (an enhancement could be considered when vision has stabilized, after pregnancy or nursing period).
- Patients with pre-treatment degrees of myopia greater than -12.00 diopters; patients whose pre-treatment astigmatism was great than 4.00 diopters; patients with pre-treatment degrees of hyperopia greater than +5.00 diopters.
