Event Description

I had lasik surgery a year ago that has given me severe dry eyes. I have to use eye drops every 15 minutes and my eyes still hurt every day and they get worse throughout the day. By evening, i can barely keep my eyes open. I even have to use drops throughout the night when i sleep. A lift that was normal with glasses is now horrible without glasses. It's not good that these drs are not checking tear production before surgery but dry eye is the number one complaint after surgery. The drs make you feel so comfortable with the procedure saying you will be fine that side effect are very rare. Now after the surgery, my eyes are terrible dry, my dr decides to do a tear test and says here are some eye drops, there is no cure for dry eye. I can say this has been the worst decision of my life and my family has to suffer with me. I'm very young (b)(6) and have to live with this the rest of my life. Something needs to be done about this. Drs shouldn't be able to butcher peoples' eyes at such ease. They should have to be able to do tear production test before the procedure. Now that i know what dry eye is, i can remember times before the procedure where i had some mild dry eye. I know if the dr had checked for it she would have seen it. I can't say it enough: something needs to be done. On top of all that research for dry eye relief is moving at a snail's pace. We really need to step it up. Thousands of dry eye patients out here need help, relief and comfort. Bilateral custom wave front lasik (b)(6) 2010. (b)(6).
