Event Date 06/06/1999
Event Type  Injury  
Event Description

After having lasik done, my eyesight has continued to deteriorate. I should never have been a candidate for the surgery due to my high prescription, and overly large pupils. Even the doctor said "your eyes were the worse i've ever done" right after he finished. Glasses cannot correct my blurry vision due to my eyesight being so unstable. I've had to give up reading for longer than ten minutes because i get headaches trying to focus, driving at night in unfamiliar areas due to such bad vision in low light, working on a computer for any extended length of time. I could go on and on. I have all the complications everyone else does. My eyes continuously water. Halos, aberrations, unstable vision, pain, distortion. Why are we still allowing this surgery to be performed. I hope the fda does its job, and yanks the approval for this butchering. Howe many others have to end up like this before they get it? i am applying for disability because i can't see well enough to work anymore. I'm only (b)(6). What do i do now?.
