Does LASIK hurt?

Most LASIK procedures run about 5-15 minutes in length, where the laser is turned on for less then 90 seconds. The good news is the actual surgeries are painless. Most discomfort can be found in the recuperation period. During this time your eyes may feel scratchy discomfort and be sensitive to light. Our LASIK Surgeon recommend patients take a nap during this time to keep they eyes gently closed for he first few hours after the procedure.
