|Laser procedures are performed in treatment rooms of the Eye Surgery Center of San Francisco, rather than the operating room. Your preparation will be the same as if you are having an eye examination in your doctor’s office. Unless your doctor instructs otherwise, you will not need to alter your regular medications. You will not receive any sedation, and only the eye receiving treatment will be dilated and numbed with anesthetic drops.|
During the procedure, you will be seated at an eye microscope to steady your head and focus the laser treatment. A focusing lens may be placed on your eye to control eye movements and keep the eyelid open. You will experience a clicking sensation as the laser beam is administered. There will be no affect on the other eye.
Following treatment, you may experience temporary blurring the first day. You may feel a slight irritation in the eye later in the day. Pain is uncommon. No bandages are necessary.
