The laser iridotomy is performed in the laser room at the Ambulatory Surgery Center. You do not need to go to the operating room. You do not need any blood work or a medical exam prior to the procedure. You will be awake, but your eye will be numbed. The laser procedure is brief – it takes between 1-2 minutes for the entire procedure. There are no restrictions on your activities after the procedure.
Your vision may be blurry for a few minutes after the procedure, but your vision should return shortly.
