If you decide to have a local anaesthetic, you will be awake during the operation. You will not be able to see what is happening, but you might be aware of bright light. Before the operation, we will give you eye drops to enlarge your pupil. (The pupil is the black circle at the front of your eye). After this, we will give you an anaesthetic to numb your eye. This involves injecting local anaesthetic solution into the area around your eye.
During the operation, we will ask you to lie as flat as possible and keep your head still. The operation normally takes an hour, but might sometimes takes a little longer.
