you also get dtrong anesthetic gels and/or drop instilled on the eye and usually in the eye.  It almost completely numbs the surface of the eye and the inside of eye is numbed some as well, though it doesn't feel  much  pain anyway.  Also some people get a regional retrobulbar or peribulbar block.
SO the correct answer is sedative AND anesthetic  drop, gel or injection.
