Event Date 01/01/2004
Event Type  Injury  
Event Description

I had lasik surgery for correction of shortsightedness. I did not realize if i was informed that i would need the preoperative measurements for subsequent cataract surgery. Now i am told this is a legal requirement from the dr, but he says the files are too difficult to retrieve and it is being done safely without. The surgeon i now see says there are limitations without these measurements and i am afraid to proceed. Is it possible to legally demand my records? is the lasik co required to maintain these records also? i see nothing about this problem on any forums or where i can get better info. I feel people are not truly aware of such difficulties in this subsequent but necessary and common surgery. Can you help me in any way? dates of use: (b)(6) 2004 - (b)(6) 2012. Reason for use: improve vision.
