This depends upon the type of surgery. For all procedures there may be some mild discomfort, but normally there is no pain during the surgery. After surgery Lasik usually has no pain, PRK, LASEK, and Epi-LASIK may have minor discomfort including the feeling of a foreign body in the eye or scratchiness.
