I haven't had the surgery but I took a family member for it. She was awake during surgery but was given Versed, makes u woozy and u usually don't remember much. She also had eye drops that numb your eye. She had no pain. Very sleepy after.
You first go for tests to see if your a candidate. They numb your eyes with drops. They also give u a pain killer. It is a 15 min procedure n ur awake. Afterwards they give you drops n things to do for a week. Check out Chelsea eyes and cosmetics. Located in manhattan, new York!! They are great and top surgeons. Highly recommend them :) good luck
I had it done. It didn't hurt at all. Just follow all instructions from the doctor. I have 20/20 now and I'm glad I did it. Your eyes may feel itchy and dry but that will stop. Don't itch them and just use the drops. Use an experienced eye doctor and relax my surgery took 12 minutes
