Event Description

I had lasik surgery at (b)(6), that the surgeon said was successful. When i returned the next day for follow-up, i was told everything went well. A week later at a subsequent follow-up, i complained that i could not see out of my left eye. The nurse, (b)(6), said to me that the vision was probably overcorrected, and i would need surgery again. When the doctor came in, she said there was no overcorrection; i just needed time to heal. A month later, i complained about the same problem, and was told again that i just needed to heal. I was charged (b)(6) for temporary glasses to use until my eye healed. Two months later, at the next follow-up, i said again that vision was blurry out of my left eye, but again i was told that the surgery was successful and that i just took longer to heal than normal. I was scheduled for another follow-up 6 months later. I began to experience starburst, halos, double-vision, blurred vision, and severe headaches. I made an appointment with an ophthalmologist on (b)(6) 2013, who advised that because the corrected vision was so different in each eye -1 in the right, -4. 75 in the left, i would need glasses again to alleviate the symptoms and to see clearly.
