Hello Audrey. Great question. By your description, it sounds as if you are experiencing presbyopia, which is the common occurance that leads to the need for reading glasses as we approach our 50s. Generally speaking, LASIK is NOT the solution to your problem. If you haven't seen an eye physician for several years, it would be a good idea for you to have a comprehensive eye exam to confirm this and rule out any eye health issues. Dr. Phillips does offer comprehensive eye exams as part of his general ophthalmology practice, and we would be happy to make an appointment for you to see him if you contact us.
