Event Description

I was talked into having rk-radial keratotomy- on my eyes by dr. He said, he never had a problem with any of his surgeries and guaranteed me a successful outcome. After the surgery, however, my eyes became very fatigued and sore. He said that i was reading from the twenty-twenty line on the eye chart and that this problem is in my head. He offered no support or guidance in this matter whatsoever, and practically dismissed me. I was shocked. Now i was left with sore, tired, fatigued eyes and no answers, since this was a new procedure in our area. So i began a journey to try and find a solution. This journey has taken me to numerous prominent eye surgeons. The have prescribed soft and hard contact lenses, glasses, performed ck-conductive keratoplasty-, lasik twice, and nothing has really corrected the problem. The pitfalls of corrective eye surgery need to be honestly discussed by these eye doctors, not covered up by misleading advertising and hype. Thank you for your time and concern in this matter.
