Is it very risky to get LASIK at 18 years old?
Hi there,

My mother recently got LASIK and now I am actually considering it myself.

I've always hated glasses and contact lenses and have found that my eye sight has gotten worse over the past few years. They are such a nuisance and well I'm sure you know the rest.

That is why I've considered this option I guess.

As a tennis player and a swimmer, I find it incredibly annoying to use contact lenses or glasses and sometimes find that my contacts wash out or my glasses drop. They sometimes distract and prohibit myself from playing these sports.

I don't know much about it yet, but I'm reading through all the risks and things like that in the booklet.

It's not confirmed. Just a thought I've had recently.

I'm still scared about the after effects and have read some scary stories about people who have had disastrous results. (rare, but there are a few)

Thanks.

LASIK is pretty safe, the horror stories are quite rare.... You hear many more stories of people injuring their eyes by breaking glasses while involved in sports. In fact, I have a bike-riding buddy who ended up with her glasses embedded in her forehead after taking a spill off her bike.

Anyhow, I'm no doctor, but it sounds like it might be a good idea to wait until you're done growing at about 25/26 though.

Not sure how your growth after age 18 affects your eyes, but that would be my first question at the consultation stage.

Don't get your hopes up too high though, not everyone is an ideal candidate for LASIK, which is why they do a consultation to make sure you're right for it.

not really, go for it babe

Disastrous results from Lasik? That is interesting, its such a basic procedure. Worst I heard is that ppl may have Extreme dryness and have to use eye drops daily. I'm sure if you find a reputable doctor you won't have any issues.
My husband is 23 and he had Lasik surgery last August. His eye sight improved greatly with in a few days.
He experienced the common side effects, such as a little pain immediatley after the procedure for the next 5 days (he said it felt like a muscle ache but in the eye and only when he had his eyes open).. and that was the worst of it...
He doesn't have the need to use eye drops, he is perfectly fine...
I'm sure he'd recommend it to anyone

I had it done because i was having problems with my contacts...my eyes were too dry. I fall asleep for 10 minutes and the contacts were pasted into my eyes. Turns out that they shouldn't do lasik on people with dry eyes. But it turned out okay in the long run.

You are too young if your eyes are still getting worse. They will not do the surgery until your vision hasn't changed in about 3 years. and you wouldn't want them to do it until then, otherwise you would end up in the same situation in a few years.

I was about 25 when i had it done. Your eyes should be stable in a couple more years. until then you can do your research. don't just trust the booklet, but also, be careful what you read about online, you can't always trust the site, as I am sure you know.

Do plenty of research. Once you screw up your eyes, you can't fix it. I have known two people that had very bad results from LASIK, I have know 3 that had good results. I wouldn't do it.


bmoviebimbo
most lasik surgeons will give you a free consultation. i had lasik last spring and don't regret it at all- it's the best $3800 i ever spent. just make sure you find a reputable surgeon, not some fly-by-night guy. i'm 43, by the way.


bigredfred
No, it's not risky but you are still young and your prescription is still changing so you may want to wait until your mid-20s. It should stop changing and you should be okay by then. If you have it done now, you may need to go back in and have it redone later. I had it done and have really enjoyed it.

It's risky at any age- if you'll notice, most opticians wear GLASSES!

Wait till your eyes are stable because at 18 they are not. My optician recommended that I should wait until I am 21. I am 23 now and I haven't had it done. My eye doctor told me that if I fix my nearsightedness, I may need reading glasses in the future. I don't want that so I've decided that I prefer to stay nearsighted. Its less likely I'll get reading glasses that way.

Just remember: you only get one pair of eyes, if they mess up you are screwed. Plus too if you have naturally dry eyes I wouldn't recommend it. A lot of people with naturally dry eyes have problems after Lasik Surgery. Either they keep opening up the flap where the laser cut, when they blink because their eye is dry or they have blurry vision and have to avoid lights and sun for 6 months until it hopefully recovers.

No,i really doubt it.
I think the people who have had disastrous results are because they probably had some other medical condition that will put them in high risk.

My cousin is an ophthalmologist, he says to wait until your prescription isn't changing anymore. If you get Lasik done and your prescription changes, the Lasik is going to just be a waste of money. I've wanted to get it done for several years, but my prescription keeps changing. :( You do have to go to a very good doctor though, because they take the lense off your eye, and if any debis gets in there, it can cause problems. A good clean office and a doctor that has done many of these surgeries are the keys to having great results. Good luck!

obviously LASIK is a very complicated procedure and things can go wrong, but iv heard fantastic things about LASIK. i know optical express, the opticians, were doing a free consultation for LASIK, so it may be worth having a consultation done, and they can answer all your questions. i have my consultation in two weeks when im on holiday from work as i am thinking of having eye surgery too. my eyes are bad. 5 new prescriptions in 2 and 1/2 years... not good!

You need to wait until your eyes stop developing and your eyesight becomes stable.

Only an respectable LASIK will give you that surgery if those 2 requirements are met.


employee of the month
ask an opthamologist that doesn't have too much stake in it. Just remember that people who do LASIK will have a positive bias, as will people that get money for referring you to LASIK people. You should also talk with people who have had the operation that are similar to you in age.
The abundance of people (or lack thereof) that are like you should tell you something about its appropriateness for you.
