What happens during Laser Eye Surgery?

LASIKS is the most common form of laser eye surgery – here is what you might experience:
You will get some anesthetic eye drops, to numb your eye, and probably some medication to relax you. You will be awake during the procedure, and laying back on a surgical table or reclining chair. Once your eye is numb, and you are relaxed, the surgeon will apply a lid speculum, to hold your eyelid open during the procedure. The surgeon will use a laser to create a flap in the surface of your cornea. The flap is folded back, and the surgeon sculpts the tissue to create your unique prescription. The flap is returned to it’s position, acts like a bandage, and speeds healing.

Your surgeon will talk to you about your specific procedure.


While LASIKS is the most common form of laser eye surgery, here are a couple other common techniques:
PRK or photorefractive keratectomy corrects moderate vision problems, and reshapes the top of the cornea, without a flap.
LASEK, laser epithelial keratomileusis, is similar to PRK, but creates a thin epithelial flap.

How long will the procedure take to do?

Laser surgery is relatively quick – about only 10-15 minutes per eye.

What does the recovery process look like?

Each laser eye surgery procedure and surgeon may have different instructions for you to follow, but here is what you can generally expect right after LASIK:

You’ll be given protective sunglasses and eye shields. You’ll have to wear the eye shields while sleeping for the first 7 days after surgery, to keep you from rubbing or putting pressure on your eyes.
You’ll be prescribed some eye drops, including antibiotic, steroid, and lubricating drops.
You may feel like you have an eyelash in your eye – that is normal.
Do not rub your eyes during recovery.
Plan to have someone drive you home from the surgery.
Your vision may be cloudy at first, but will clear quickly, and improve steadily over the next six months.
Wait a day to shower, and then make sure not to get any water or soap in your eyes for about a week or more.
You can get back to work in a day or two, depending on the type of your work.
In about a week, you can return to normal exercise and wearing eye makeup. Also, hold off on swimming for about 2 weeks.
