VISX EXCIMER LASER Back to Search Results
Event Date 07/06/2006
Event Type  Injury  
Event Description

I was overcorrected in my left eye as a result of wavefront prk with the visx excimer laser. Not only that i have, terrible side effects in both eyes -gash- which greatly affect my night vision and vision in low light situations. Mild dry eye is also problematic. For a procedure that was supposed to make my life easier, it has made it much more difficult and complex on a daily basis. I so very wish that i could go back to my vision with glasses. Not a day goes by that i am not reminded of the adverse events following my prk. Date of use: 2006. Diagnosis or reason for use: myopia. Event abated after use stopped or dose reduced? #1. No, #2. No.
