It is not a matter of your age but the aging of your eye’s natural lens which often becomes significant after age 55. If you are starting to develop cataracts, Lasik might not give you the clear vision you hoped for and cataracts may cloud your vision again soon
Our brain’s wonderful ability to adapt is central to presbyopic laser vision correction. Prior to PresbyLasik a tolerance test is essential. This determines if it will be well tolerated by your brain.
With blended laser vision correction, the cornea (first clear layer of the eye) is shaped in such a way that refractive errors are corrected, and an extended focus is created.

Wearing reading glasses is the most common way of dealing with presbyopia. This is a temporary solution. The advantage to glasses is that you can do that dramatic stare or removal when deemed necessary.
The word 'presbyopia' means 'old eye' in Greek. Unlike many other conditions surrendering to reading glasses isn’t a question of if, but when. If you live long enough, you will need reading glasses. The good news is there are more possibilities than ever to continue functioning seamlessly despite of the loss of your natural ability to see up close.
