Welcome to icliniq.com.
It is hard to advise you fully not knowing the full refractive status of your eyes and seeing the keratotopgraphy report that you underwent already and must have a report of it, you could upload it here for better evaluation.
However, you have to understand that a human eye starts changing its refraction after the age of 40 and will continue to change every five years after that. So you will enjoy the result of this operation for a maximum of five years and then you will start wearing spectacles for near so keep that in mind.
The second issue that you might face a new condition, that is if you are not suffering from it before the operation, and that is dry eye for which you still need to use a lubricant at least four times daily for the rest of your life. In summary, the choice is upto you of course but at such an age, I would not advise. If you would like a more decisive advice, please upload the reports.
