In general, LASIK is not FDA-approved for anybody younger than 18 years old. In exceptional circumstances, we have performed LASIK on teenagers. These are situations where there was a large prescription difference between the 2 eyes and the person could not tolerate a contact lens. There is no upper age limit for LASIK. We have performed LASIK on people in their eighties and they were delighted! As long as the eye is healthy without other conditions (such as cataracts, glaucoma), LASIK is a possibility.
