I have read that a retinal exam should not hurt, yet I have had these exams 5 times in the last 2 months (four following surgery for a torn retina). Each time, it hurts A LOT when they keep pressing that instrument on my eye. I even jumped last time when the Dr. pressed on my tear duct. I feel like such a baby because it is not supposed to hurt. Are they pressing too hard? Is it their technique that could be improved upon? Do you have any idea why it hurts me so much? Thank you.
