How Old Do You Have To Be To Have LASIK?

How Old Do You Have To Be To Have LASIK?

By EyeClinicAdmin April 4, 2016

Age for LASIKGrowing eyes are changing eyes.  LASIK, commonly referred to as laser vision correction, is a procedure meant for those who have a stable prescription.  A patient’s eye prescription should be stable for at least one year prior to surgery. Until you’ve stopped growing and changing, you aren’t a good candidate for LASIK.

In fact, the FDA has approved LASIK only for people who are age 18 and over.  Some eye surgery centers prefer to operate only on patients 21 and over, to ensure stability.  Appropriate education is given to the patient prior to the procedure.

For more information on LASIK, please contact The Eye Clinic Surgicenter in Billings at 406-252-6608 or to schedule a LASIK consultation.
