Event Type  Injury  
Event Description

I had lasik surgery and it pretty much ruined my quality of life. I now suffer from extremely painful dry eye syndrome. I never even knew what dry eye syndrome meant before my lasik surgery. I thought complications were a very, very small percent and now i am reading that the dry eye complications are huge. I think this surgery is a crime against those of us who think it is a miracle, only to find out that our lives are ruined with pain afterwards.
