Do You Have to be Put Under Anesthesia for LASIK?
For any surgery, most patients expect that they will have to be put under anesthesia. However, that is not always the case. When it comes to LASIK surgery, it is not the case. Instead, there are less invasive alternatives.
Numbing the Eyes during the Procedure
During your laser eye surgery, your body is not poked or prodded. There is no entry of a needle with anesthesia. Instead, your eyes will receive a numbing solution through the use of anesthetic eye drops. These allow the surgery to continue without having to put you under.
The anesthetic eye drops also allow the surgery to be pain-free. Your Eye Specialists are happy to explain more if you have any questions about this numbing method. Contact our staff at 954-452-9922.
