Event Description

I had wave front lasik in (b)(6) 2010. My vision was corrected to 20/20 in right eye and to 20/25 in left eye after surgery. Immediately after surgery vision in my left eye got blurred. I am 9 months post op as of now, the vision in my left eye still same blurred. On top of it, two months after the surgery, i started developing floaters in both eyes. They just getting worse since then. Floaters extremely distracting during the day time, and on all bright backgrounds. Blurred vision in my left eye constantly distracting me while night driving. Since i can read 20/25 i am considered lasik success. This is no way how doctor can come up with such statements, i am suspecting that a lot of lasik "success" info is just simply misapprehended to public. I would like to get back to my glasses but no such way.
