Event Description

I had lasik performed in 2008. The procedure caused me to wind up with dry eye syndrome. I was told to use restasis, take biotear gel caps and eat a lot of omega 3 foods. I have to put drops/gel in my eyes on an hourly basis due to the pain. I can't use the air conditioning or be outside because of the wind/heat/sun -i live in dry. - i have trouble concentrating at work due to pain. I work on a computer all day and i have an ac return directly above me. I was told my life would change -i thought they meant for the better, not worse-. I spend more money now than i did before i had the surgery. I still wear glasses, the only difference is i am in continual pain and have limitations in my daily routines. If i had been properly informed, i would have said, no, thank you. The pain is not worth being able to see better -and i still don't have 20/20-. I had almost a minus nine --9- diopter in both eyes. Believe me in the severest of pain, there are times when thoughts come to you like i don't want to live like this. I can't do this any more. The only thing that keeps me going is that i know in my heart that god is good and he is going to help me overcome this. It's emotionally frustrating because there isn't anything anyone can really do.
