Event Description

I have post lasik ectasia/blatantly misdiagnosed. In 2005 i had lasik eye surgery performed on both eyes. In 2009 my left eye rapidly deteriorated as i lost my vision and felt pain grow stronger by the day. I was diagnosed by a very experienced cornea specialist with post lasik ectasia in 2012. I was blatantly misdiagnosed on (b)(6) 2013 by the surgeon that performed my lasik surgery, and his referral buddy that is a cornea surgeon working in harmony with the coverup. The cornea surgeon informed me that i have keratoconus and the only way to repair my sight is to have cornea transplant. I was scheduled for that surgery to be on (b)(6) 2013 and the lasik surgeon that has left me with this pain, suffering, loss of income, depression, suicidal thoughts, severe anxiety, and a completely miserable life paid (or maybe he didn't as i didn't see the payment take place) for my cornea transplant surgery as to even try to deceive me that he was not looking out for my best interest or my health. Both or these prominent doctors looked me straight in the eyes and told me a blatant lie and a blatant misdiagnosis that i knew was only to cover their name and hope i was not aware of their doing so. I have all the evidence anybody would need to prove that these doctors are in this together to save their name and or any possibility of the filing a lawsuit. Well i am not a fool, so i did what a pt does and listened to their professional diagnosis of my blindness. I was treated like scum, and their greed is catching up with them. I am a victim of the lasik procedure, but now i am a victim of two prominent surgeons misdiagnosing me on complete purpose. I will not let this go without justice being served in my favor. I have a case, and all the evidence is right in front of me. The expert witness is the doctor that did the right of his pt and diagnosed with a proper diagnosis, and he is more experienced than the two that are knowingly covering up truth selfishly.
