7. Surgery is Quick and Painless

Laser eye surgery only takes about 10 to 15 minutes for each eye. During the procedure the surgeon will place a suction cup ring on top of your eye to keep it from moving. The laser will cut a thin flap in your cornea (the outer layer of tissue), lift the flap and reshapes the tissue underneath. The flap is replaced to adhere to the eyeball and protect the altered eye tissue.
