Event Type  Injury  
Event Description

Eight yrs ago, i had lasik surgery on both of my eyes. Since then i have had blurred vision. Headaches, extremely impaired night vision and dizziness. The doctor who performed my surgery was let go which i later found out was due to his poor results. I was misinformed on many levels regarding the outcome and expectation of this procedure. I have since been back to that same practice where i have had 3 additional surgeries, and it has been highly suggested by this practice that i have a 4th. I have spent thousands of dollars on other physicians only to be told i am stuck like this. I am a mother of two small children and this is ruining my life! i was not a good candidate for this procedure as i have a large pupil size. I am angry, frustrated and helpless.
