Event Description

Lasik, prk eye surgery left eye prk, right eye lasik. Extreme difference from l to r eye. Left eye also still has bad astigmatism, had to get prescription reading glasses for one eye to slow down headaches. I paid the extra per eye, for lifetime touch up. After waiting 1 yr, i went back to see if they could balance out the eye better and was told no. Unless they get worse than 20/40 they would not do it. That was not told to me at the time of surgery. Why pay the extra money then? i am now very light sensitive. As my md told me, photo-phobic. The need for sunglasses is all the time and i have even had a few episodes that were so severe that i had to pull over when driving. It is interfering with my work. Floaters or what i would term as dirt floating around in the eyes, which is really loose blood vessels. I was told that these would go away after a few weeks as they started shortly after the surgery. It's been a year and a half and there's still a lot of them.
