How young is too young for Laser Eye Surgery?
To have laser eye surgery you need to be at least 18 years of age.
If you are a mature 18 year old then there is no problem.
Some surgeons prefer that you are 21 years of age. However there is enough evidence to suggest that if your correction is good, then the progression of myopia is stopped.
For this reason, for a patient who meets all of the criteria during an evaluation we are happy to perform the surgery from the age of 18.
