Event Type  Injury  
Event Description

I had a lasik procedure done 10 years ago because i have myopia and could not wear contacts any longer due to dry eyes. Since the procedure, i have had decreased visual acuity, redness, dryness and irritation of the eyes. I am now under the care of a cornea specialist and use serum derived eye drops that require refrigeration 4 times daily. My distance vision is 20/25 now, and a use a variety of glasses for presbyopia. At the time of my surgery, i was not informed that a side effect of lasik may be increased corneal dryness.
