People often think that when the treatment is categorized into a surgical procedure it is quite painful and critical. However, this does not apply to all types of surgery, as the popular Lasik surgery is not painful in the right hands.
Lasik eye surgery is different amongst other surgeries in a sense that everything you fear about a surgery is not applicable. Moreover, it is considered as the safest and the most painless surgery you can ever have. Its not the same as having open heart surgery.

How Come Lasik is Painless?
Though the patient needs to be awake during the surgery, he or she will not feel pain as anesthetic eye drops and a mild sedative will be given prior to the start of the surgery. During the first step wherein a flap is formed from the cornea, the patient will just feel a little pressure on the eyes, but this will not totally hurt him.
After the surgery, wherein the flap is placed back on the cornea, a little eye discomfort, irritation, and scratchiness might be experienced by the patient. However, this can also soothe out after an hour because of the eye drops.
We work extra hard to keep it a pain free procedure. Starting with playing the music of your choice, to guiding you step by step through the procedure of Lasik keeps it enjoyable.
