Event Description

Complications from lasik surgery in 2005. Prior to surgery in 2004, i was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease - thyroid eye disease. I was treated with radiation therapy in 2004 to control inflammation in eyes. I was told i was a candidate for surgery with worse case senario being i may have to wear glasses or contacts to get 20/20 vision. Vision deteriorated over time and i had 2 refloat procedures to try to improve the situation. I had 12 sutures placed in my left eye on the second refloat procedure, to help hold the flap in place. My vision post lasik is 20/200 in my left eye and 20/70 in my right eye. Glasses do not correct the problem and contacts are not an option because i am intolerant to them. I spent 6 months with a lens specialist at the (b) (6) with no success. Due to the lasik surgery, i suffer from vision loss, double vision, halos, irregular astigmatism, anasometropia and dry eye syndrome. I lost my job of 16 years due to the complications.
