LASIK has changed the vision for the better for millions over the past decades. For those 40 and over, LASIK may be a great option to improve or even correct vision.
As the eyes age, it becomes more likely a person will need reading glasses, especially after the age of 40. Today, individuals in their 40s and older are increasingly opting for laser surgery that assists in correcting near vision, or presbyopia, by correcting one eye for distance and the other for near vision. Sometimes LASIK surgery improves vision substantially although patients might still find the need for reading glasses.
