Event Description

In 2008, i had lasik vision correction in both eyes for nearsightedness. Neither eye was properly corrected from 20/400 to 20/100. The left eye was corrected from 20/400 to 20/60. In 2008, i had the right eye corrected a second time, and it is now 20/40. In 2009, i had the left eye corrected a second time and it is now 20/15. Prior to, and during the whole procedure, i explained to the doctors that i was using flonase for allergies. They kept telling me to quit using eye drops for dry eye, as my eyes would not return to normal unless i did. During my last visit they finally listened, and advised that flonase was causing the dry eye, and that i should start using eye drops on a regular basis to counteract the problem. I have lost most of my near vision as a result of this procedure. If the doctor had listened to me at the outset, and not advised me to quit using eye drops, i believe i would not had had the 4th procedure, and would still have my near vision. Please, use this info to inform others. Dates of use: 2008 - 2009. Diagnosis: nearsighted.
