Does LASIK Hurt?

Does LASIK HurtYour LASIK procedure should be a pain-free experience.  Before your eye surgery begins, numbing eye drops will be put into your eye to eliminate any pain or discomfort during the procedure.  You may also request or receive a prescription for a medication to help you relax before the surgery.  During the surgery you will likely feel some pressure on your eyes but no pain.

After the surgery, your eyes will remain numb for a while.  After the drops wear off, you might experience some short-term, temporary discomfort or itching.  This doesn’t last long.  You might experience temporary dry eye syndrome which can also be uncomfortable.  Special eye drops can be provided to help with this.
