Generally speaking, if you are between the ages of 18 to 65, and your eyes are in great health, then you may be a great candidate for a vision correction procedure. Your age and ocular health are two elements that your surgeon will examine when deciding the type of surgery best-suited for you and your eyes.
It’s important to note that this is case-by-case.
If you are younger than 18, eye surgeons prefer to hold off on performing surgery. This is due to the fact that it’s normal for vision to change into early adulthood. After the age of 19, assuming your eyes are in good health, you’ll likely be given the goahead to get a procedure.
If you’re older than 40, then you may be suitable for a different kind of procedure. If you’ve noticed blurry reading vision, it’s time to find out what the issue at hand is (presbyopia). Check with your doctor: They may propose an alternative solution for your eyesight. Many people go their entire lives without needing reading glasses...until reaching a certain age.
For people who have cataracts (typically affecting people aged 70 and over), a lens replacement procedure may be the best solution. Cataract—masses of proteins that gather on the surface of the eye’s lens—will affect more than half of the senior population. While a standard LASIK surgery itself cannot correction a condition like cataracts, other procedures available can improve vision at this stage.
