I had lasik surgery in 1998 and following, have post lasik ectasia in both eyes.
My vision has progressed to the point where my left eye is legally blind, and i function using my right eye, which gives me 20/60 vision but with severe astigmatism, so i have constant disabling headaches.
I also wear an eye patch on my left eye because my brain cannot process the images produced by the eyes at the same time - anisometropia - without getting even more severe, intolerable headaches.
Because of the constant headaches and low vision, i cannot work or attend school and i do not qualify for disability.
The surgery - performed, using a visx laser - has absolutely ruined my life.
I am not a good candidate for a cornea transplant because i have extremely dry eye, also exacerbated by lasik surgery.
This surgery has destroyed my life.
Please contact me if you want further info.
Dates of use: 2008.
Diagnosis or reason for use: lasik for myopia.
