Event Description

In 1999, i had lasik eye surgery performed by md. I was very nearsighted. I was told, i was a good candidate for the surgery and i signed a bunch of forms. After the surgery, my vision was good until a few years later when it started getting worse again. It has continued to get worse over time and today i was diagnosed with ectasia, -aka- iatrognic keratoconus. I wear gas permeable lenses, but cannot see 20/20 out of my left eye. Glasses no longer correct my vision sufficiently and i have been informed that i may need corneal transplants.
