I had mine done about two years ago. I even had it video taped for me. I felt alittle pressure on my eyes, but it did not hurt at all. They gave me a vicodin 30 minutes before the surgery and then they put numbing drops in. After wearing glasses and contacts for over 31 years, it was well worth it and still amazes me to wake up and not reach for my glasses. I still catch myself trying to slide those glasses up my nose and remember they are not there. I would do it all again.
