Event Description

My left eye had bad cornea scarring and i need a cornea transplant which costs (b) (6) that i don't have. I have to close my left eye while i see with my right one or the bad sight overlaps with my right eye. I now have one good eye. And glasses don't help. Contacts hurt after 4 hours in my left eye, so i can't wear them all day. Also my left eye is 20/100 with double vision and very bad light streaks at night. I just want my left eye taken out; it bothers me when i try to see with my other 20/30 right eye. I got laid off two months ago, and it probably will be harder with one eye to keep any decent job. I had four operations -enhancements- that caused trauma to my left eye and started (b) (6) simplex which caused damage to my left eye. The place where i had operations will not help me at all with money because they say i can't prove that the lasers caused the virus. I am very mad, but can't do anything about it. By the way, i did not have (b) (6) before the operation.
