What if I blink or move my eye during the procedure?

Your surgeon will use a small speculum to hold your eyelids open during the procedure; so blinking is not a concern. Some patients experience slight pressure from the speculum. You will focus on a blinking light during the procedure. Uncontrollable movements of the eye are expected, and the advanced lasers used for LASIK include an eye tracker, which follows these movements to ensure the accurate delivery of laser pulses.
