In brief: Not yet age stabilit

Myopia and astigmatism can be corrected with laser.
Minimum approved age is 18. (Are you 16 or 22?) In addition to your prescription testing for stability, other very important tests and a dilated exam will be done by your ophthalmologist to see if you are a candidate then. There are other treatments that can correct your vision as well if your are not a good laser candidate.
