Event Description

Despite having good vision, i was induced to have lasik surgery to strengthen my distance vision for athletics - softball, golf, refereeing-. I was told i would have to wear "cheaters" to read. After the surgery my distance vision was improved, but it was difficult to read event with cheaters. After complaining i was told i was a good candidate for enhancement surgery-ck-. I was given contacts that they said would stimulate what vision would be like after enhancement. Both my distance and near vision were excellent with the contacts so i agreed to the enhancement. In the meantime, however, i had to have an aortic valve replacement. During this surgery, a clot went to my brain causing a stroke. I recovered from both the replacement and the stroke and was able to see except for peripheral vision to the left. I was given the ck enhancement with a resultant blurriness in both my distance and near vision. Now, a year after the enhancement and a huge expenditure and multiple pairs of glasses, i can only focus on images that are about 20 feet away. My life is ruined. I have always been very active physically but now can only shoot baskets in my driveway. I was a 3-handicapper in golf and can no longer break 100 and have to play with a spotter. I can only type and read with computer font magnification. It's like living behind a muddy windshield. Since i can see about 20 feet, the constant eye tests are a joke. In effect, i'm 20/20 blind. I need 20' golf tees, a step ladder and two caddies.
