Vision Correction Timeline

Young Adults

In this age group, patients with nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism have typically been visually stable for several years. This provides them with more choices – glasses, contacts, and laser vision correction. Due to its superior outcomes and quick recovery, more and more people are opting for LASIK with Dr. Tekwani to better accommodate an active lifestyle. Younger patients also enjoy the greatest cost benefit over time. No wonder so many patients ask ‘Why didn’t I do this sooner?’ after surgery.

Vision correction procedures most commonly recommended for this group include:

LASIK, Implantable Contact Lens (ICL)

Middle Ages

After years of stable, clear vision, people in their 40s and 50s begin to experience issues with glare and blurry near vision. This decline in vision may be due presbyopia, a natural age-related condition in which the lens inside the eye progressively loses its natural flexibility. Most people in this age group will begin to use readers, bifocals, or multi-focal contacts, which may accommodate their visual needs, but not their lifestyle. For those seeking freedom from corrective lenses, South County Eye Care has a variety of treatment options aimed at restoring near, intermediate, and far vision.

Vision correction procedures most commonly recommended for this group include:

LASIK, Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE)


This age group is starting to notice vision changes that decrease the amount of light that can enter the eye, ultimately leading to clouded and/or yellow-tinted vision due to the cataract formation. With today’s advanced technology, Dr. Tekwani has surgical options to reduce or eliminate your dependency on corrective lenses.

Vision correction procedures most recommended for this group include:

Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE), Cataract
