Am I Old Enough or Too Old for LASIK?

Have you asked the questions ” Am I too old for LASIK ?” or ” What age can you get LASIK ?”
If you are at least 18 years old, you can get LASIK.
But what if you’re 40, or 60, or 80? If you are 40 or 50, you’re still young for LASIK. I can help you to see up close AND far. Because LASIK occurs on the part of the eye that remains stable over long periods of time, LASIK won’t change the rate at which your eyes age.
If you are in your 70s, though, it might be better to opt for cataract surgery instead of LASIK. In your 60’s, I’ll check you carefully for early cataract and we’ll decide if early cataract surgery or LASIK is a better choice for you.
Of course, every person’s eyes and circumstances are different, so regardless of your age, I still need to examine your eyes to make sure you’re a LASIK candidate. So call and make an appointment, and I’ll answer all the questions you have.
