Event Description

I had lasik and about a couple of weeks afterwards i noticed when i looked on the horizon, it would pulsate, as i would say. None of the drs knew what the matter was. Months later my vision would pulsate when i was at a conference or seminar and i'd look way down at the presentor. Several months later it would be across the room until finally my eye started to cross. Then it got closer and now anything past 3 - 4 ft, my eye will cross. I have to live with one eye shut. I have to drive with one eye shut as i can not function. I don't have a product. I'm just wanting to report lasik has ruined my life.
