Question:
Is it customary to charge a fee for overcorrection services during the recovery period following LASIK surgery?

Answer:
I think you are asking if it is common to charge to correct an overcorrection after LASIK surgery. Unless your surgeon provides some sort of "guarantee" or "warranty" program, most charge for going back to perform more laser correction whether it is over- or under-corrected. Because we are operating on human tissue rather than hard plastic, it is difficult to guarantee the result of this type of surgery even though the large majority do very well.
