Event Type  Injury  
Event Description

Lasik eye surgery. Every day since surgery, i have had eye pain, burning, stabbing pain, gritty feeling and horrible headaches. I am unable to drive at night halo's, starburst & blurred vision. Any bright lights cause severe pain and blurred vision. I spend about 2 of the 8 hours of work each day, without being able to see clearly enough to do my job. Outside of work, i am forced to stay in my home with the lights out. I had continued to go back to the facility that performed the surgery and have been given the following suggestions: none have made any difference. Directed to sue every brand of "drops" on the market. Do not run any ceiling fans at home. Tape eyes shut at night. Do not go in the sun. Stop smoking. Restasis - used for 4 months and told to discontinue because they didn't help. Now i'm being told to go back on and that it would take up to 2 years for results. Punctal plugs were put in. Do not go in the wind or let any air blow in my eyes. Take fish oil pills. Take flax see oil pills. Limit my time on the computer. I work for a software company.
