For LASIK, from their FAQ: "The actual treatment itself is painless, but you will feel a lot of pressure on your eyes when the laser is creating the corneal flap. You will be given anesthetic drops to completely numb the eye. After the procedure is finished, you will feel a sensation some patients describe as gritty, as if a lash is in your eye for a few hours. Most people experience very little pain and need nothing more than Tylenol or Advil and a little rest time. However, you will be given pain medication just in case."
Regarding PRK, again from their FAQ: "You won’t feel pain during PRK procedure iself, because Dr. Tracy will place anesthetic eye drops in your eyes first. After your PRK, you will use eye drops to prevent pain, and you may also use pain medication that will be prescribed to you if necessary. Most patients report only mild discomfort for a day or so after surgery."
