In this blog post, we\u2019ll answer that question and provide you with the information you need to take the first step towards life-changing visual freedom. Who can get laser eye surgery? Laser eye surgery is a remarkable option for many people, but it\u2019s not a one-size-fits-all solution. Your suitability for the procedure depends on several factors, and it\u2019s essential to have a thorough assessment to determine if you\u2019re a good candidate. Here are the key considerations: Age: In Australia, you must be at least 18 years old to undergo laser eye surgery. This age requirement ensures that your eyes have matured and your prescription has stabilised. Prescription Stability: Laser eye surgery is most effective when your glasses or contact lens prescription has remained stable for at least one to two years. A stable prescription indicates that your eyes have reached a point where the procedure is likely to provide lasting results. Overall Eye Health: Your eye health plays a vital role in determining your suitability for laser eye surgery. Conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, or severe dry eye may impact your eligibility. Our experienced team can assess your eyes to ensure they are in good condition for the procedure.
