Your eyes continue to age and the lens inside your eye will go through two significant changes. First, the lens will become less flexible, on average around age 45, you’ll experience presbyopia (difficulty reading up close). Second, the lens will become cloudy over time, probably in your sixties or seventies, and you’ll experience vision problems due to cataracts. These conditions will occur, regardless of whether you have LASIK or not. We encourage people considering LASIK to do it as soon as possible so you get the maximum benefit from years of glasses-free vision.
