Event Date 11/13/2007
Event Type  Injury  
Event Description

Custom wavefront lasik both eyes. Initial outcome: remarkable improvement in vision. Deterioration noted after 3-4 days. Problem with multiple images immediately following procedure, esp. At night. Dry eye. Distinct difference in prescription between left and right eyes after surgery. Right eye was retreated after 9 months and is now near sighted only. Dr. Advised against retreat on left eye -for fear of same outcome?- when i look at the moon or a traffic light i see 5 images. The additional images are in the same positions in both eyes. This leads me to believe something was wrong with the equipment or setup -visx- several wavescans have been attempted by 3 doctors/machines since surgery on the right eye with no success.
