Saw him 10 minutes before procedure.
Initial exams performed by another ophthalmologist.
The surgeon stated i may get halos with my enlarged pupils.
I was not warned of common side effects but about major complications only.
I now experience poor night vision, contrast difficulty, halos and starbursts mainly at night and especially while driving.
I actually asked my wife to drive sometimes since depending on the location i'm driving at.
Can be very dangerous for me to drive since i cannot trust my eyesight.
The halos, starbursts are dynamic that i am aware of my pupils contracting and widening depending on the incoming light - from cars, streetlights, traffic lights.
The aberrations become bad to severe depending on how much light hits my pupils.
I used to work as a paramedic, driving myself through traffic in bad/good weather, in city and rural regions with little light.
Now i am not able to do this since a life might depend on me being able to get to an address quick enough.
Since i cannot trust my eyesight on how it reacts to incoming light.
I am no longer able to drive an emergency vehicle.
