Is LASIK eye surgery painful?

The short answer is no, LASIK surgery doesn’t hurt. The eye can actually be numbed with drops alone, so one of the beauties of LASIK is that no other sedation is needed. No heavy sedatives, no injections, just eye drops! The most you would feel is some mild pressure. After your LASIK procedure, you may experience some sensitivity and dryness, similar to having a dry contact in your eye. The prescribed drops will help alleviate this feeling.
