Glasses: The decision to have lasik depends on a number of factors, but you might have the most enjoyment from it before you reach your 40's, because most people need reading glasses to see up close from their mid-40's onward (assuming that you correct both eyes to see in the distance with lasik).

Why wait?: If you want to continue to be wearing glasses, then that is your choice. I recommend having the procedure done and see the benefits of being glasses free.

I am going to get a lasik eye surgery. What should I expect?

Quick recovery: The surgery will take about 15-20 minutes total. There will be little or no pain or discomfort. The eyes will be a little blurry that day but should be very clear by the next day.
