In brief: 18

Fda cutoff, but can go younger for special cases.
Most importantly, vision rx should be stable and the rest of the eye healthy. Higher risk of change in early 20s.

In brief: 18 to 21 years old

A person's eye must have a stable refraction/prescription before refactive surgery, regardless of age.
Children have growing and changing prescriptions until adulthood, generally stable by 18 to 21 years of age.
