Age and LASIK Surgery

Question: I am 68 and have no sign of Cataracts. Would LASIK work for me?

Answer: Age is not a limiting factor for having LASIK Surgery. If you are in good overall health, your eyes are healthy, free of Cataracts as you state and you meet the other requirements for LASIK including adequate healthy tears, normal corneal shape, thickness and health and wish to less dependent or perhaps independent of eyeglasses for seeing far away then LASIK is a possibility for you. Your next step is to schedule a consultation with the best LASIK Surgeon in your area so that he or she can provide the necessary testing and counsel to make sure this is your preferred vision correction option.
