Will i need reading glasses sooner if i have lasik?

Lasik does not affect the rate at which your eye muscles get weaker. If you are currently near-sighted, you could potentially take your glasses off to read after age 40. By fixing your near-sightedness, you lose that advantage. This is why you should explore the monovision option.
