In general, the ideal candidate for LASIK is over 18 years of age and has healthy corneas. Candidates must not have had a significant increase in their prescription in the last 12 months before surgery. People with certain medical conditions or women who are pregnant may not be good candidates for LASIK. Your doctor will let you know if you are a good candidate for LASIK or not.
The goal of LASIK is to reduce your dependence on corrective lenses. LASIK does not always create 20/20 or even 20/40 vision. It cannot correct a condition known as presbyopia, or aging of the eye. In fact, people over 40 who have their distance vision improved with LASIK, may find they need reading glasses after the procedure. Your doctor will provide you with additional information that will allow you to make an informed decision.
