Event Type  Injury  
Event Description

Lasik surgery to correct vision. The surgery was done. As a result of my surgery, i have severe, chronic dry eyes. I insert lacriserts in both eyes daily; they blur my vision but do offer some relief. I also use restasis eye drops, theratears liquid gel, and i take 2000 mg of flax oil per day. I have lacrimal plugs in both eyes in both punctum. Sometimes the pain is so unbearable that i am forced to wear swimming goggles to protect my eyes from the air. I've seen three ophthalmologists, and they all agreed there is no occular treatment for my condition, and that the condition is permanent. In other words, my eyes are not going to get any better.
