Eyes treatment

Hi. I am 21yrs old. I have power of -3.75 in both eye. I want to remove my specs and improve or correct my eyesight. Is lasic treatment/surgery is a good option or not for my age? If it is will it improve my eyesight for lifetime or some period of time?
Thank you.

Lasik

You can go for it provided you have atleast 500micrometre central thickness of your cornea;

The correction will be for your lifetime;
You may need nearvision glasses after 40 years or so else no glasses et all.

Feel free to follow up to know different types of lasik's:: their adv and disadvantages.

Hope it helps :)
