Changing fields to readonly

When a user creates a new account, i want them to enter data into a field and then once created not allow them to change this same field again. So i need the field to not be readonly on creation of a new account but readonly once the user has been created.
 
Anyone know how to do this or if infact its possible?
 
Cheers

I dont think we can make a field read only after creation(If im not wrong).
 
One way u can stop editing that field is write a data validation on that field,throwing an error message
 
AND(NOT(isNEW()),ISCHANGED(FIELD))
