In brief: LASIK surgery

Your procedure will take 8-10 minutes.
Your flaps are usually made first and then the laser correction is performed subsequently. There is generally no pain. After the procedure may be mildly scratchy for a day or two. Visual recovery is rapid with most patients able to drive the next morning.

In brief: Quick recovery

The surgery will take about 15-20 minutes total.
There will be little or no pain or discomfort. The eyes will be a little blurry that day but should be very clear by the next day.
