• Normal Vision Development in Adults Under 40

    Jul. 17, 2012

    Eye and vision system development are complete by the early 20s and normally remain steady through the 30s, although women may experience vision fluctuations during pregnancy. Eyeglass or contact lens prescriptions change only slightly or not at all during this life stage. For this reason, if a person is considering LASIK or other refractive surgery for vision correction, this would be a reasonable time to have the surgery. Like any surgery, LASIK has both benefits and risks. Research your options carefully before making a decision.

    People who are diabetic or pre-diabetic need to have regular eye exams and work with their doctors to control weight and blood sugar as well as blood pressure and cholesterol.
