Lasik: Vision stabilizes after lasik over weeks and by about 3-4 months should be stable.

LASIK: Vision can improve significantly by the next day. Over the next week or two, the vision will further improve. In general, visual recovery after lasik is very fast.

Variable: Most don't get this, but it can last weeks to forever. In my experience, it usually goes away several weeks after surgery.
