How long does laser Eye surgery take?

The whole time you are in the hospital for laser eye surgery is 3-4 hours. The actual procedure itself ,the amount of time that laser is operating on your eye is between 5-20 seconds depending on your eye prescription and this is very similar for all types of laser surgery for LASEK and LASIK.But there is obviously a lot more than just firing the laser ,we have to prepare the eye by cleaning around the eye,putting anaesthetic drops into the eye to anaesthise it,we have to place eyelid speculum in place to prevent you blinking during operation and we have to position & centre the laser.But in terms of total time that you are in operation theatre itself is around 15mins.
