valium for nerves, demoral for pain/nerves, phenergan is anti-nausea, but when i had it after my csection (got very pukey from the morphine spinal wearing off) it made me really sleepy/relaxed. I didn't ask for the meds, they just gave them to me. I suppose I could have refused, but I figure every bit helps, right?
At the time, I didn't feel that the drugs were working, didn't ever feel loopy or anything like that, but looking back, I was REALLY calm while people were messing with my face/eyes. When you lay under the lasers, you really can't see much and your whole body, except your face is in the open.
After care is eye drops 4x/day for a week, wear goggles while sleeping or napping for several days, take care to not bump or rub your eyes. Sleep as much as possible right after having it done (or at least rest with your eyes closed).
The actual lasik procedure itself is very, very fast. It took about 45 seconds per eye to make the flap and about 30 seconds per eye to do the laser. Super, super fast. Waiting before was so much longer.
