Event Type  Injury  
Event Description

I had intralase lasik surgery two years ago. I now suffer from severe dry eyes and it is only getting worse. My dr has run out of options to help. I have been on restasis, inserted plugs, use steroid drops and artificial tears, use oral supplements biotears fish oil, and even wear moisturizing goggles at night. No relief! i can't get more than a few hours of sleep each night and now suffer from depression. My life has been destroyed by the butcher dr that is completely unsympathetic and in a mad rush to get his next victim. Noteworthy: during the procedure, the dr said that my eyes were "bubbling" and had to stop for about 45 minutes to allow them to settle. It was 45 minutes of torment severe burning. He then completed the procedure. Perhaps something went wrong and the reason my eyes have been damaged. Dates of use: (b)(6)2008. Diagnosis or reason for use: to correct -1. 5 nearsightedness. (b)(4).
