On the Day of the LASIK procedure

The actual laser time is literally measured in seconds. There is no pain during and post the surgery. Numbing drops are all that is used.
How is LASIK done?
LASIK is performed with the patient seated in a reclining chair in an outpatient surgical suite. First the eye is numbed with a few drops of topical anesthetic. An eyelid holder (called a speculum) is placed between the eyelids to keep them open and prevent you from blinking.
Step I : Using an instrument called micro keratome a thin flap of corneal tissue is made and folded back.
Step II : The excimer laser is applied which reshapes the corneal tissue.
Step III : The corneal flap is then placed back into its original position and allowed to dry. Antibiotic drops are applied and eyes are covered with a dark goggle. Both the eyes are usually treated together.
