I was just told that I have a tumor behind my left retina. It can be removed with laser & 'sucking' it out with a needle. Ummmm.... needles are going in MY eyeball.... lol I was wondering if anyone has had this & what your experience was. When I was told about the procedure, being put to sleep wasn't mentioned as an option. I can't even imagine.....
A needle inserted in the eye!!!! I just don't think I can do it.
Anyone else out there???? Help!!!!!

" I had eye surgery several times and they numb your eye up so that you can't feel a thing and they will give you some kind of iv tranquillizer so you are not out of your mind with anxiety. "
