No: The problem is during the procedure you need to look at a light so the doctor can center the treatment. If you are asleep, there is no way to be sure the treatment is centered on your cornea. However, with some sedation beforehand and careful reassurance by your doctor you should be fine. Remember, everyone who has the procedure is scared.
