It is normal to be nervous when going to such an operation. The doctors will take you through the procedure of what will be happening and allow you to ask any questions. You will be okay as the optician doctors are qualified enough for the procedure. Good luck.

Do you trust the doctor? Normal to be scared, ask the doctor about his qualifications. Always good to be an active patient.

Hi, Mf3. Honey, if I was having eye surgery, I'd be nervous, too. But everything's going to be okay. I just came out of big hospital where they took me off of all my seizure medications and I was scared out of my mind, but I had to trust in the knowledge of the doctors (and I'm a praying person, so I trusted in the Lord also!). But I'm one of those people who like to watch stuff on the Discovery Channel and sometimes they'll show advances in technology. And you just wouldn't believe what they can do with eye surgery now. It's amazing. I think any kind of surgery is scary and I think it'd be a little odd not to be scared. But the doctors have instruments now that are SO very precise that I don't think you need to be worrying one bit about a nerve being hit. And, as far as waking up, talk to the anesthesiologist. He/she can help you with that. I've done that many times. They can put your fears to rest. If you don't mind, I will say a prayer for you. I know you'll be just fine and come out the better for it, sweetie.

Every surgery carries a risk. Its why they only do one eye at a time. These people went to school for a long time and know what they are doing. Theyve done it hundreds if not thousands of times so relax.

I've had 7 surgeries. This includes on each eye. The surgeries for my eyes went extremely well and were the least painful and fastest to recover from.

Doctors are usually careful when it comes to that kinda stuff. I had a lot of surgeries on my heart and I would be afraid that I would wake up in the middle of it seeing a huge hole in my chest. Now I don't know about you but I would find that scary ha , ha but none of that has happened at all . You will be just fine !
