I just had Retinal Laser surgery in both eyes. I was given numbing drops in both eyes as well as an injection of numbing meds. Certain areas of my eye during treatment were absolutely unbearable. My Dr. said in so many words I was crazy as "there are no nerve receptors in the eye". We actually argued about it because he simply didn't believe I truly had any pain. As the procedure continued, he lowered the power/strength on the laser, I noticed it completely lessoned the pain. Unfortunately, this occurred at the end of the treatment. Is there a reason why the Dr. wouldn't have lowered the laser strength from the beginning if I was in so much discomfort?
