Event Date 10/16/2002
Event Type  Injury  
Event Description

I was told that the fda was holding a hearing or discussion about post lasik problems. The contact person was karen warburton, but i didn't know how to get this to her. I had lasik surgery in 2002, and it has left me disabled. I am in constant discomfort and pain due to severe dry eye. I am not eligible to receive medicare for another two years which means i have no health insurance. I have lost two homes and can no longer work at my regular job due to this problem. I have halos, starbursts, sensitivity to light, can't tolerate wind or air from fans, can't go to shopping malls or stores without extreme discomfort which has lead to depression and anxiety. Please hear my voice!!! this surgery is a lot more dangerous than most people will admit. I feel like my life has been ruined. And the thought of living the rest of my life with this pain is horrible.
