LASIK EYE SURGERY Back to Search Results
Event Date 06/01/2006
Event Type  Injury  
Event Description

I am reporting the negative results of lasik surgery on my eyes. Immediately following the surgery, i experienced a precipitous loss of "near vision", i. E. The ability to see objects close to me. The radius of my lost "near vision" has continued to grow over the past three + years and now extends to approx four feet from my face. I have no genetic history that would explain the sudden and continued loss of my reading vision. Additionally, i now experience frequent headaches from the constant effort of trying to focus my eyes from near to distant objects. I experience mild discomfort in my right eye periodically, as if an eyelash was in my eye. Most disturbing to me is the damage to my peripheral vision: if i look at something out of the corners of my eyes, i experience severe double vision and dizziness. This was not something i had prior to lasik surgery, but presented immediately following the surgery. Finally, after all the expense and side-effects of lasik, the astigmatism i had sought to correct was not corrected and the benefit of improved distance vision has dissipated over time. Frequency: 1x. Route: ophthalmic. Dates of use: 2006 - 2010. Diagnosis or reason for use: astigmatism, mild myopia. Event abated after use stopped: no.
