Your procedure will then be scheduled, and you will be advised how long you need to stop wearing contact lenses prior to your treatment, if you wear them normally. The procedure is performed while you are awake, but we will numb your eyes so there is no discomfort. The procedure takes about 20 minutes for both eyes.
