Can I Blink during the procedure ?

There is no problem gently blinking during lasik. We do place a small device to keep the lids apart do you cannot close your eye even if you blink. It is better though not to squeeze your eyes as this tends to make it more difficult for the procedure to go as fast as you want it.
