Event Description

I had lasik surgery and did not require glasses to read while driving. I only needed glasses for close reading. After 2007, i realized that this was changing. I needed glasses for more things and my vision was degrading to returning to need glasses fulltime and at the same prescription before the laser surgery. I contacted the dr. 's office where it was done for a followup and this change and was told that if it had to be "redone" i would again have to pay for another surgery as the time was past the "two years". I then went to an ophthalmologist and was told that my glasses were of the same strength, of the ones i wore before the surgery, and that i had a cornea problem and had stages of cataracts. I was shocked since i thought that the exam at the time of the surgery would have shown these problems and would have shown perhaps an alternate type of surgery, or addressing this condition first. Vision after laser surgery and correction did not sustain.
