NOTE: The success of refractive surgery will vary depending on the amount of nearsightedness, farsightedness, general health of the eye and the age of the patient. There is no upper age limit. However, as part of the natural aging process, the eye tends to become presbyopic (lose the ability to focus up close). Therefore, reading glasses will become necessary sometime after the age of 40.
The actual LASIK procedure process is performed the same way in both conventional LASIK and Custom LVC. Conventional LASIK is still an excellent choice for many patients. Your doctor will recommend which procedure is best for you based on your consultation results; he will help you determine if you could benefit from the higher level of customization that Custom LVC may provide. Custom LVC is necessary for some and desirable for many. Everyone’s eyes are different. Your pre-procedure consultation with your doctor will help determine the range of your probable outcome on your particular prescription, healing profile and expectations.Back to LASIK Home
