If you have read anything related to LASIK eye surgery, you know that the cornea interferes with the procedure and must be placed aside or removed in some other way. While you may fret about this part of the process, xenophobia is the only reason someone would be worried about LASIK.

Xenophobia & LASIK Eye Surgery

Xenophobia is a “fear of the unknown.” In regards to LASIK eye surgery, many people read about the procedure and start to worry that it will hurt or that they will not be able to go through with it. Rather than research the effects of the procedure, or talk to people who have had the procedure, some people work themselves into a xenophobic state in regards to LASIK procedures. They have fear because they do not understand that the procedure is pain-free.

One of the best ways to fight this fear is to do some research! Fortunately, these fears are not based on scientific studies or pushed by those who had LASIK eye surgery. In fact, you can read a large number of reviews of Dr. Barry’s past patients who have had LASIK, and they will all say the same thing: the procedure was quick, painless, and entirely worth it!

Why Is the Procedure Painless?

Dr. Wasserman ensures the procedure is painless by using highly sophisticated numbing drops before and during the procedure. These drops are clinically proven to completely numb the eye, making LASIK a pain free procedure that can be done in just over 15 minutes! No pain, no problem, only results!

Dr. Barry is dedicated to helping you conquer your fears, which is why he offers an entirely free qualifying exam where he talks you through the process and ensures that LASIK is the right choice for you.
