You are brought into the surgical suite. You will be given a hair cover.

You are made as comfortable as possible on the bed, instructed as to what to expect, and your surgery is performed. First one eye, then the other.

Your are escorted into the recovery room complete with soft music and a reclining lounge chair. You will be here about 20 minutes.
