Event Type  Injury  
Event Description

I had wavefront lasik surgery in 2004. I was severely overcorrected and had to have a second surgery 4 months later in early 2005. I have had severe dry eye ever since. I use drops almost every hour -systane nonpreservative vials- and get up at night 2 to 3 times to put drops in and still wake up with red, irritated eyes. My upper eyelids are always swollen and i get irritated eyes if i put makeup or moisturizer to close to my eyes. I have a lot of discomfort and get stabbing eye pain with headaches 2 to 3 times a month. It take two days of advil to stop the pain. I believe i am also uncorrectable. My optometrist hasn't specifically told me this but there is no change to my vision with different lens. I have to wear reading glasses to see within arms length now and didn't right before the surgery but needed to right after the surgery. I had to wear my husband's reading glasses to see at all until the next surgery. I was unable to read or write or drive a car for 4 mos.
