NY LASIK Surgeon Satish Modi, M.D. commented on being too old for Bladeless LASIK. “Not that long ago we examined and provided a LASIK consultation for a 68 year old woman who wanted to be less dependent on her eyeglasses for seeing at distance as she was an avid tennis player and just couldn’t tolerate contact lenses. She was concerned about being too old for LASIK,” shared Dr. Modi.
“After considering her overall health and her eye exam I was comfortable that her eye health, corneal health and tear film were quite good. Also, her retinal health was normal and she had no sign of cataracts. Her vision corrected to 20/20 with a -7.00 D eyeglass correction. She really couldn’t tolerate contact lenses and was a fairly active tennis player and hiker-so we scheduled her for bladeless LASIK,” explained Dr. Modi. “We did however explain that she was going to need to either wear reading glasses or consider having monovision to help with the near vision presbyopia focusing problem that we all have after 40 or so.”
As long as they have a tangible reason for wanting LASIK so that it will improve their lifestyle, people thinking about having Laser Eye Surgery can do so without worrying about being too old for LASIK as long as they have healthy eyes, a health cornea, sufficient tears and are free of cataracts or retinal diseases.
