In brief: Yes

Always possible. Even without laser surgical complications, vision can still worsen after laser eye surgery.
For example, you can experience myopic regression or a small change in prescription. You can have natural age-related cataract formation, presbyopia, or other reasons to develop worsening vision. It's a matter of when and how fast.
