In brief: Depends

... On what you mean by "corrected.
" lasik can help correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism. At age 48, your need for reading glasses will not be "corrected" by lasik. That is caused by presbyopia, a loss of focusing power of the lens of the eye that usually occurs during the mid 40s.
