What can I expect on the day of surgery?
Laser PRK, LASIK and LASEK are all outpatient procedures, which means you’ll spend around an hour at the surgeon’s office and walk out afterwards. Someone else should drive you home, since your vision might be a little blurry right after surgery. The procedure itself is brief and painless. Dr. Goldberg will place anaesthetic drops in your eye to eliminate any discomfort. LASIK and LASEK patients typically report little or no discomfort following their treatment. With PRK there will be some discomfort. Medication is supplied to relieve any post-operative irritation.
