Event Type  Injury  
Event Description

I have chronic aqueous deficient dry eye aka neurotrophic keratopathy or refractory dry eye. My eyes do not tear when they are dry or come into contact with irritants and allergens. This is an extremely painful and degenerative condition though i don't think i will be around to see exactly how bad it gets because i intend to end my life soon. My doctor claims that it is not possible for this to be a result of lasik. However, when pressed he said that up to 40% of lasik patients have some degree of residual dry eye. He is full of contradictions. It depends what you're asking him and in what context. The answer changes regularly. It took me 6 years to find a doctor that finally told me that this condition is in fact due to lasik surgery. This is due to a concerted effort by ophthalmologists to cover up for each other. Even though they knew better they sent me on a 6 year quest to find out what i should have been told before the surgery. Lasik causes extreme dry eyes in many people, especially people like me with high risk factors.
