anesthesia injected behind eye to ease pain of PRP laser
.If a person decides to get anesthesia into the top tissue layer or in the space behind your eye.to ease the pain of the PRP laser treatment, would this be done in the OR or in a office room at the Hospital? And what are risks and benefits?

What is more comfortable if PRP laser treatment would cause pain - Direct PASCAL or Indirect PASCAL PRP laser treatment?  
. ps i think i posted this in wrong forum earlier

It is usually done in the office and carries a small amount of risk that your surgeon could discuss with you.  Direct vs. indirect doesn't make as much of a difference as the power settings on the laser.
