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.
