Event Type  Injury  
Event Description

I had lasik surgery on both eyes and immediately had severe dry eyes, halos, ghosting, double vision and headaches. I have spent the past six years with over 11 doctors with minimal relief. In the interim, i developed a cataract in one eye due to steroids used as a potential solution for my problems. The cataract healing process took almost one year and has left my eye in much worse condition. I now am left with only one third of my eye that i can only occasionally see out of properly. This is like a film over my eye that gets much worse with high humidity. My current condition finds me waking 5-6 times per night to 'un-stick' my eyes with specialized eye lubricant. I have found no lubricant that has worked well and am constantly searching for an answer. I am also developing a new pain in my left eye deep within. The reason for this is unk at this point.
