How long is the treatment? Is it painful?
Normally the Lasik Surgery only takes about 15 minutes, in which the laser treatment itself takes only a few seconds. The treatment is not painful. Both eyes may be treated together. No injections are necessary. If all goes well, there will be a little irritation in the eyes for a few hours before the eye settles down.
Does the patient have to stay in hospital?
No, the patient can go home immediately. Things that irritate the eyes should, however, be avoided for a few weeks. For instance, in bright sunlight, it is advisable to wear sunglasses.
