Event Type  Injury  
Event Description

Had lasik surgery in 2001, and i have severe dry eye syndrome and was never told that it could be a side affect of the surgery. I experience dry eyes everyday all year around and especially in the winter cold months and also especially when it is windy. I experience it almost constantly as the air is usually always dry. I have runny eyes constantly and people frequently ask me if i am crying. I use restatis and it is no longer affective. I have to use drops everyday several times a day. And i fear that it will affect my vision as i get older. Had i known that this would be a possibility, i would have never had the surgery. The quality of life has tremendously been affected as i constantly worry about my vision and have to constantly deal with the dry eyes.
