Hi!! Thank you for sharing this experience – I went through Lasik this summer and had the same thing happen and I think I am guilty of doing the same explanation to people. Now that it’s over and I can see I am always saying “oh it was a breeze!” when actually all of that other stuff also happened and it was a little anxiety inducing. I will say however that the entire time I was looking at the bright light, my doctor was talking me through it and was very positive, so that helped me a lot. I definitely wish I had known all of the details going in and I think the offices need to do a better job of explaining it. I’ll be more conscious now of how I describe it to others as well!
