What if I blink during the procedure?


Many patients are worried that they will blink or move their eyes during LASIK. Dr. Gardiner will use an eyelid holder during the treatment to prevent you from blinking. Also, the laser has built-in technology that tracks eye movements. If the eye moves, the laser will account for the movement and will stop treating until the eye is realigned. In addition, numbing drops used during the procedure will reduce your impulse to blink.
