In brief: No
Laser eye surgery does not shrink the eye and the eye cannot re-grow afterwards.
Lasik re-shapes the front window (cornea) to account for the prescription in your eye. Occasionally, there are those whose prescriptions seem to return after lasik. This can be due to early cataract growth, or regression caused by a change in the cornea after lasik.
