What are the age limits of vision correction?

You’ve probably heard a lot of mixed messages on social media, or from others, about whether you’re too old or too young for laser eye treatment.

While age is a factor, the more important consideration is the stability of your prescription and the goals you’re hoping to achieve with vision correction. In fact, many people choose to get surgery early in life because they want to enjoy the benefits of vision without glasses for as long as possible.

When you get to 40-50 years of age, you’ll notice a change in your eyes whether you have laser eye surgery or not. For this group, we have alternative vision correction solutions, like lens replacement, that will help them to get out of reading glasses and avoid getting cataracts.

Book a consultation with us to learn more about your options. In the meantime, take the first step towards clear vision and discover your suitability with our 1-minute self-test.
