Event Type  Injury  
Event Description

I had lasik surgery performed in the year of 2000 at the age of 51. It took an entire year for my eyes to truly settle in to their new vision. The past summer, i have been diagnosed with dry macular degeneration and very small cataracts. I have very blurred vision. Macular degeneration does not run in my large family and only my mother has had cataracts -she had surgery on them this past summer-. I have extreme dry eye in the mornings and have had morning dry eye ever since my lasik surgery. Now that i have to wear gas perm contacts, the dry eye in the mornings is really bad. With an almost negative family history of cataracts and a negative family history of macular degeneration, i can't help but wonder if the lasik surgery has anything to do with these problems.
