Are you laying down during lasik surgery?

You will lie on your back in a reclining chair in an exam room that contains the laser system. Sleeping during LASIK surgery isn't a good idea. The LASIK surgeon needs to know how the eyes feel during the procedure. Once you lie down comfortably in a laser suite, those anesthetic eye drops will have taken effect.

Your doctor may decide to give more, depending on the effects. However, your eyelids won't go numb, so you may feel like an instrument is being used to keep your eyes open. LASIK eye surgery is a procedure that is performed while you are awake, much like how you would be awake during a minor dental procedure. LASIK is a popular refractive eye surgery performed with a laser that is designed and programmed to reshape the cornea and improve myopia (myopia), farsightedness (farsightedness) and astigmatism.

LASIK is one of the most successful types of surgery today, with minimal risks and very few side effects. In the time it took me to worry about what could go wrong, your LASIK eye surgery will be over.
