Event Description

I had lasik surgery and was promised 20/20 vision with no need for glasses. Two yrs later, i still experience dry eyes, need for nearly constant wear of closeup glasses for 1st 10 feet, and fuzzy night vision. I am a physician and waited to have the surgery and only let myself do it because, it was explained to me that all the kinks were worked out of the procedure. I am able to see distance without glasses, but if i was clearly explained the downsides which i experience i would have waited more yrs for further improvement in the procedure. Unfortunately, medicine in this country has become big, maybe biggest, business and doctors, medical industry, hospitals are not under any real self, government, or fda ethical, moral quality control, in my field of orthopedics millions of unnecessary mris, xrays, procedure, surgeries and labeling of pts making them sicker are being promoted by the medical conglomerate and by pts. Until real understanding of the human being is incorporated into the world of medicine, and not just collections of body parts, with all kinds of disease labels thrown at people by other people, doctors, and media--great perpetuation of fears and all kinds of pills, tests, procedure, and surgeries are being generated without the real higher wisdom that we should be incorporating in health promotion and care.
