Event Description

I had lasik surgery performed in the year 2000. I had many problems right after my surgery, i called and saw the dr. Well, he was never available. I saw his assistant, or talked to other staff at the office. Dry eyes, i came to realize later were causing a lot of my problems. I had halos, ghosting and i still don't really like to drive at night because it doesn't feel safe. My eyes are blurry everyday. It starts from the time i get up until about 11am and eases up a little. My eyes have gotten worse over the years, it affects my vision terribly and causes pain, i've spent a lot of money on dr's visits, eye drops, different eye wear, flax seed, omega 3's and many other things. I have been back to him and he says there is nothing he can do except an enhancement -spend more money- well after what i've gone through, i would be pretty scared. My eyes get heavy easily, red, scratchy and gritty. I had none of these experiences before my surgery. This has caused major low self esteem and problems in my daily life with work, driving and other activities.
