Event Type  Injury  
Event Description

I had bilateral lasik eye procedure to correct distance vision. I awoke the next day to find that i had 20/20 distance vision, but i had lost my near vision. That was not the case prior to surgery and i do not remember being specifically warned of that possibility. I also developed dry eye, floaters, halo & glare that i was told would go away within a few months healing time. They did not. I also was not offered the option of only having one eye done at a time or was the option of monovision correction offered. I am an ultrasound technician by trade and i depend on being able to see near/computer and now i am burdened with having to wear glasses and having to pay off a huge amount of loan because i didn't want to wear glasses in the first place !! diagnosis or reason for use: improve distance vision.
