What causes eyesight to go bad?

I just got Lasik done not too long ago and just wanted to know what I should do or don't do to maintain my good vision now.

What factors will cause my eyesight to go bad? I don't want to do Lasik again so I really need to take care of my vision now?

Dear Hollandlop
Enjoy your vision!  The LASIK is usually permanent but your eyes may change small amounts with age.  Go to your eyeMD yearly, and undergo routine eye examinations to check the health of your eyes!
