There is no pain involved. You will be given a topical anaesthetic so what people usually report is feeling pressure and some pushing. Most LASIK patients do not experience discomfort after surgery, those that do experience minor discomfort including grittiness, light sensitivity and tearing that lasts 2-3 hours. PRK patients take a few days to heal but paradoxically experience less in the way of discomfort as they are wearing bandage contact lenses and are using more pain-killers during the healing process.
