Event Description

I had lasik surgery in 2001; a year later, my vision had worsened, so i had to have it again; to this date; i cannot see anything without rigid gas permeable contact lens that i can only wear for 8 hours a day; i'm literally blind without these glasses; i only wish i'd never gotten this surgery, because glasses don't even work. I'm really sad and depressed about this.
