Does LASIK Hurt?

Of all the questions we get asked here at Your Eye Specialists, the most common one we receive is regarding pain. We get asked, does LASIK hurt?The short and sweet answer is no. LASIK, in most if not all cases, does not hurt.

Why Not?

Sure, you might ask why this doesn’t hurt. After all, it does involve a cutting of the cornea and laser correction. This is pain-free because your eyes are first treated with a numbing solution. Anesthetic eye drops are used before any LASIK procedure to prevent any pain.
