Nearsighted people go through three stages of ocular development. Your current place on that timeline affects Dr. Magruder’s treatment plan:
Most nearsighted people begin wearing glasses in elementary school – usually by around age 12. After moving to increasingly stronger prescriptions through high school, they typically reach ocular maturity in their early 20s.
The natural lens remains relatively stable for the next couple decades before starting to change again in your 40s. Up until this time it has been very elastic; now it’s stiffening. Your prescription changes. You might need reading glasses. This stage is a good time to consider lens replacement.
By age 80, more than half of all Americans have had a cataract, which is a clouding of the eye’s natural lens. Custom Cataract Surgery from Magruder Laser Vision eliminates cataracts and improves your vision in a single procedure!
With laser eye correction, the 20-year period between Phase 1 and Phase 2 is when you get the most bang for your buck. Have the procedure done in your 20s, and you might make it well into your 40s without needing glasses or contact lenses again.
Imagine going 20 years without the ongoing expense of buying new glasses or contact lenses and solution! Plus you no longer have to live with the hassle and limitations of wearing corrective lenses. The benefit is even greater for athletes and people with active lifestyles.
If you have children who wear glasses or contacts, a LASIK procedure is the ideal college graduation gift. You made sure they had braces to correct their teeth – now launch them into adulthood with corrected vision.
“Great! We’re excited that you want to take the first step toward freedom from glasses and contacts.”
