Before your laser procedure begins, Dr. Holzman administers numbing eye drops. Not only does this prevent pain and discomfort, but it also suppresses the urge to blink. The eyelid is also held open with a small device so the surgeon can access the treatment area. While Dr. Holzman is working, we will keep your eyes lubricated so they do not dry out.

Once the procedure begins, a light becomes visible. Patients focus on this light while the treatment is being performed. Dr. Holzman closely follows the movement of the eye during the entire procedure. Additionally, a built-in eye tracker moves with every minute shift of the eye. In the highly unlikely event that a patient looks away, coughs, or sneezes, the device automatically shuts off at that precise moment.
