Event Type  Injury  
Event Description

I had prk performed last year. Fortunately, i did not have the pain that some have described post procedure, however, i had blurred vision for at least 6 months. Luckily i only had my left eye treated. There is no way i could have driven or performed my job had i had both eyes treated. Today, over a year post procedure, i have developed pain, redness, blurred vision, and extremely watery eye. This procedure is barbaric, had i been better informed by the practitioner performing the procedure, or done more research about post-procedure complications, i doubt i would have undergone the procedure.
