Model Number STAR EXCIMER LASER
Event Date 03/23/2000
Event Type  Injury  
Event Description

Halos, double vision, slow vision. After lasik surgery was performed i began seeing halos and experiencing double vision after dark. Although follow up tests have rated my vision as 20/20 or 20/25, it sometimes takes several seconds to determine the answer when i take the vision test. Although i can see well, these vision issues are noticeable at night. These symptoms -slow vision, double vision, and halos- are only a problem in one eye. I manage by closing that eye when needed or wearing an eye patch when needed. Diagnosis or reason for use: myopia.
