Lasik danger!!
Apr 8, 2006
Just would like to warn others about Lasik danger. I was sucked into it because of the Intralase thinking it`s safer than the blade. It caused me so much pain and suffering. I`m 3 months out of it and didn`t have a single happy day! It`s very, very dangerous. I see some people are happy with it, well, this is pure luck...I thought I would be happy too.. There`s nothing worse than messing up with the eyes. Glasses are not much fun, but you won`t die from wearing them, as I believe now, you can die from Lasik. If you have problems, chances are you`ll be worrying all the time, depressed, not being able to work, actually, not being able to do anything because your eyes hurt and you can`t see, it could be very disruptive to your life...Imagine if you have to study or work and have these problems? I`m experiencing all these "nice" things now... What if that happens to you? Unless you`ll have the greatest surgeon in the world and the blade procedure? Or will be lucky? Are there any guarantees? I don`t know. The healing period could be very difficult.. All I know I`m having it. People say it should get better. But at what cost? If I only knew it would be like this I would be very happy with my glasses. Eyes are too precious to risk. Again, my procedure was Intralase with a well known doctor in our area..

This is absolutely ridiculous what you told us about your complications. Mine were just trouble focusing, weird vision for the 1st month or so (very different from what I saw with glasses), slight blurriness in the right eye due to some swelling probably (the pupil in that eye was slightly bigger than in the other one) but according to them it`s 20/15 in both eyes.. Plus it seems like they did change the way my eyes look as well.. 2 months of crapy vision and eye pain did the damage to my emotional state and I don`t care about this Lasik crap vision any more.
Give me my glasses and my natural eyes back for God`s sake! What a relief that would be! I could never imagine I could cause myself so much suffering!
I really believe now that this Intralase crap is much worse than the blade.
Did they tell you about possible complications before the procedure?
I can`t remember if they warned me before the procedure of what actually happened to me afterwards... I really was under impression that Intralase doesn`t have any complications.. They never mentioned it could take forever (if ever) for the eyes to heal..
