Does LASIK Eye Surgery Hurt? Is LASIK Painful?

LASIK eye surgery has quickly become a highly popular procedure, but it is natural for potential LASIK patients to have concerns. A commonly asked question is, does LASIK eye surgery hurt? The answer is no. LASIK eye surgery is conducted while under the effect of anesthetic drops on the eye, meaning you will feel nothing during the procedure. After the anesthetic wears off there is often irritation of the eye which most people compare to getting dust in your eye. The feeling passes within hours. Sensitivity to light can also be a problem, but special dark goggles are usually given to patients after treatment to avoid this.
