The best age for myopia surgery

Abstract: teenagers under the age of 18 are not suitable for myopia surgery, because they are in the stage of growth and development, and their ocular axis will still grow longer. If such myopia patients blindly accept myopia laser treatment for myopia surgery when the diopter of the eye is not completely stable, they are more likely to grow myopia after surgery, which can not ensure the stability of the effect of myopia surgery. The best age of

for myopia laser surgery is generally between 18 and 50 years old. However, this age group is only a relatively general concept. The best age group for laser myopia surgery should be considered according to the occupation of the patient.

and

are engaged in dance, public relations, sports and other occupations that do not require long-term close eye use. The age for surgery is preferably between 18 and 50. For occupations with more desk work, such as college students, teachers, journalists and civil servants, it is recommended to undergo surgery between the ages of 18 and 35. Because people’s eyes begin to “flower” (i.e. presbyopia) around the age of 40. After myopia surgery, they can see clearly in the distance, but they need to wear “presbyopic glasses” when working at the desk.

teenagers under the age of 18 are not suitable for myopia surgery, because they are in the stage of growth and development, and their ocular axis will still grow longer. If such myopia patients blindly accept myopia laser treatment for myopia surgery when the diopter of the eye is not completely stable, they are more likely to grow myopia after surgery, which can not ensure the stability of the effect of myopia surgery.

and

specially remind that laser myopia surgery is not recommended for myopia friends over the age of 50. Because after the age of 50, the incidence of cataract gradually increases, and the regulatory function of eyeball gradually weakens, “presbyopia” also begins to appear and worsen. These people use laser surgery to correct myopia, which actually does more harm than good.

in addition to the age limit, laser myopia surgery can be performed only if the following three conditions are met at the same time:

1. Myopia is 100-1400 degrees, astigmatism is less than 600, hyperopia is less than 600, and the refractive state is relatively stable in recent two years;

2. After preoperative examination, all eye conditions meet the operation standards;

3. After examination, there are no contraindications for laser treatment of myopia, such as no active inflammation of the eye (including acute conjunctivitis, keratitis, etc.); No keratoconus, severe dry eye, etc; Not severe amblyopia patients with very poor corrected vision; It is not scar constitution or collagen disease; Non exophthalmos, eyelid insufficiency, monocular patients, etc.

myopia patients can do myopia surgery as long as they meet the conditions of preoperative examination of myopia surgery, regardless of season and time. Of course, it is better to do myopia surgery in winter and summer vacation or golden week holiday, because the longer the rest time is, the more conducive to postoperative recovery.
