Does laser eye surgery hurt?

No. Numbing drops are used prior to the procedure in order to numb the nerves on the outer window of the eye known as the cornea. This means that there is no pain at all during the procedure. The effect of these drops lasts in excess of twenty minutes with the procedure taking around ten minutes to complete. There are brief periods during which you may feel a slight pressure, but not pain.
