Does LASIK hurt? Is LASIK painful?
IN THIS VIDEO, DR. BENNETT CHOTINER EXPLAINS THE PAIN-FREE PROCEDURE OF LASIK
No, LASIK eye surgery is not painful. The surgical procedure incorporates the usage of topical numbing eye drops and mild oral sedatives to minimize any discomfort. Your LASIK surgeon will reshape the cornea with a laser in a procedure lasting no more than 30 minutes, with the laser used for a couple of minutes per eye.
It is a relatively pleasant and pain-free experience, with a swift healing process and minimal side effects for most people.
Most people, after completing the LASIK procedure say they can’t believe how easy the process is, and how comfortable they felt during the procedure.
