I had lasik surgery on my left eye only despite my ophthalmologist's urging that i do both eyes.
I had read of the possibility that i would see an aura around lights at night after surgery and did not want to take the chance that would happen on both eyes.
I had it done on my eye with the worse vision, 14 diopters.
After it was done my vision in that eye was about 1 diopter.
It progressed to 3.
5 diopters fairly rapidly and is now at 6.
My complaint is that i read in an ophthalmology text book about six months after the surgery that surgery was not recommended for people with vision of 8 diopters or worse and also that it was not recommended for people of my age.
I had the surgery done at a med ctr and the physician should have known this info, but he did not inform me even though i did ask the questions.
