Event Description

I had lasik surgery in both eyes in 2002 at the eye clinic. All went well and i had no problems until 2008. My right eye got very blurry- very quickly. I thought it was time for me to go in and have lasik again- or a "tune-up" as they call it. I went to a new doctor because i had moved. He spent a lot of time and took a lot of fancy pictures and said that he thought i had "corneal ectasia". He sent me to a cornea specialist at another facility for a second opinion. The cornea specialist agreed and diagnosed me with corneal ectasia. Both drs said this is caused from the lasik surgery. Dr recommended a clinical trial at the third facility - a crosslinking study for this very diagnosis. I am at this time enrolling in it. I am very concerned though because it is a study and not a treatment. The vision in my left eye is very bad, but there is nothing to improve it at the moment. And i have to travel to atlanta and must pay for all of this on my own.
