Event Type  Injury  
Event Description

I got lasik eye surgery in early 2006 - (that's not the exact date), i have no vision issues, thank god, but what i do have is permanent dry eye disorder. The dry eye disorder is hell at times, it's very painful and i get headaches, it is disabling because i have a lot of trouble working a full day, because the ventilation and wind hitting my eyes makes them very dry and then painful. It's always there and never goes away, it's permanent. I use drops all the time and have all four punctal plugs, plugged but they're still dry. When the headaches come it's disabling and interferes in my life. I just find it hard going on with a normal life with this dry eye disease, it never goes away. If i would have known this would happen, i wouldn't have gotten lasik at all, i would be much happier with my glasses.
