Unfortunately, Lasik surgery or PRK surgery when you're twenty-five can't slow the aging that leads to presbyopia. What is presbyopia, after all, but aging of the eyes, which we all have?
You can lessen the likelihood of presbyopia surgery and other presbyopia treatments by taking care of your eyes.

You may have to have Lasik surgery again as part of your presbyopia treatment.
