What is the best age to get laser eye surgery? Are you tired of having to wear eyeglasses or contact lenses all the time? Consider laser eye surgery! It\u2019s a great option if you want to correct your vision and be free from the hassle of corrective lenses. But when is the best time to get laser eye surgery? This question troubles many, but don\u2019t worry \u2013 we are here to help. In this blog post, we will discuss the best age for laser eye surgery so you can make an informed decision. Factors you should consider In general, the ideal age for laser eye surgery is between 20-40 years old. Before the age of 20, your eyes are still developing, so undergoing laser eye surgery could be dangerous. After the age of 40, the natural ageing process of your eyes begins to affect vision, so getting the surgery done may not result in lasting benefits. However, it is essential to note that everyone is different, and each case is unique. Hence, we will evaluate your medical history, check your eyes thoroughly, and advise you on the best course of action. Another factor to consider when deciding the age for laser eye surgery is the type of surgery. We offer popular laser eye surgeries: LASIK, Smartsight, PRK and TransPRK. We pride ourselves on using the latest technology and procedures to improve your vision. It\u2019s also essential to consider your lifestyle when deciding the best age for laser eye surgery. If you have a stable prescription and aren\u2019t planning on having children soon, getting the surgery done earlier can be more beneficial. But if you\u2019re planning on having children in the next few years, it may be best for you to wait until after you give birth as hormonal fluctuations during your pregnancy can affect vision. Lastly, it is also crucial to choose a certified and reputable surgeon to perform the procedure, regardless of your age. A skilled surgeon will evaluate your medical history, scrutinise your eyes carefully, and advise you accordingly. Thankfully, we have Dr Matthew Russell who is a highly sought after surgeon with many years of practice. With the right age and a trustworthy doctor, laser eye surgery can offer life-changing benefits and free you from the complications of corrective lenses.
