A lot of people ask their optometrists if they make good candidates for the procedure. The optimal patient is at least 18, has good eye and overall health, and some kind of refractive issue that affects their vision but has stabilized.

Healing time for refractive surgery is usually 48-72 hours with limited restrictions for one week.
