Event Description

The date of the "event" is the moment of realization of the problem, not the date the lasik occurred. I had lasik performed about 10 years ago by a dr. My vision was excellent immediately, but began deteriorating and i went in for a redo on one eye a little over a year later. My vision continued to decline and i learned, it was not correctable by glasses. I realized a few years ago that i was seeing triple, but didn't know why. I didn't put it together with lasik until 2007 surfing on the internet. The medical forum talked about a pt whose triplopia was caused by lasik. Then i met an optometrist who was familiar with triplopia. He examined me and confirmed he couldn't do anything. He suggested getting legal representation but i don't have the money to do so. He told me i will not be able to pass a dmv eye chart exam. I didn't think there was anything i could do. Then my daughter heard on npr that the fda is looking into lasik issues and that's how i got here.
