Event Description

Had lasik procedure for vision correction. Resulted in severe debilitating dry eye in right eye. Also moderate to severe dry eye in the left. Was informed that dry eye was a temporary condition, and would subside in a few weeks. Resulted in poor to extremely blurred vision in the right eye. Glasses will not help due to varying extremes in vision affected by the dry eye. Had no preexisting condition going into surgery, nor was any exam given for existing moisture conditions. Reported this to place that i had surgery done and was told it may take a year or more for it to subside. Duration of time became longer than first information i received. Was on restasis for about 1 year. This had no positive effect on the condition. Condition is painful, and exceptionally bad during the winter months when dryer outside. Can not tolerate air movement of any kind toward eyes. Results in instant irritation and heightened blurring of right eye. Must put drops in 20 times a day or more.
