Event Description

I had surgery in lasik center in 2008, i was farsightedness using 1. 50 glasses i went to have a consultation to see if i was a candidate for surgery, they said i was the perfect candidate and that it will be done in less than 10 minutes. The day of the surgery, a lady doctor who was going to perform the surgery told us that we may need reading glasses after the surgery, she never told us that i won't be able to see up to 8 feet or that i will have this problems that i am writing below. Discomfort of pain, blurry vision, dryness, glare, halos, starbursts around light, itching, scratchiness, light sensitivity, i can hardly see my face now, i cannot perform my job, i have been buying almost 30 pairs of glasses trying to fit one to my needs and my life, it is not the same any more. I am very depressed, grieving, desperate, they have ruined my eyes and my life, and the life of my family. Please help me. I don't know what to do now. I feel blind, i can do nothing.
