Cryotherapy is to help make your eye feel better.  It works by making the eye really cold.  The doctors will put an instrument that looks like a pen on your eye, they will do this at the hospital after you have your anaesthetic to make you sleep, so you won’t feel it.  When you go home the doctor will give you cream to put on your eye for a few days to help make it feel better.
