LASIK should take less than 20 minutes with the actual application of laser taking typically less than a minute, depending on your prescription. LASIK is completely painless as the eye is anaesthetised using drops, however, minimal discomfort or grittiness will be experienced after treatment. This will not last long and can be minimised by resting both eyes and taking the prescribed medication.
