... d, I felt as though I had something in my left eye. I didn't want to touch it, so I asked my designated driver to pull over and give it a look.

... I had laysik done 2 weeks ago. I was told that the lazer feathered out past cornal flap. When the numbing drops wore off that night, the pain was excruciating.

They also sent me a check with some of the paid... (0 replies)

... My goodness! Sounded like your doctor needs a course in chair-side ettiquette. As a patient, I would be livid to hear that the surgeon did something without my consent. It is both unethical and unprofessional. You as a consumer is paying for the service you want, not what he wants. If deliberate undercorrection was his general practice, he needs to make it known to the... (31 replies)
... That is horrible! Sorry to hear about your problem. Something doesn't sound right to me. No doctor is gonna intentionally under/over-correct one eye without telling you.

... caffeinated, not terribly sugary beverage. Do everything you can to calm yourself down and see if that helps some. I know that the corneal thickness has something to do with their worries about when they are going to cut the flap. They don't want them too thick or too thin. ... (4 replies)

... a small circular saw was placed onto my eye and turned on to create the corneal flap. I almost passed out from the pain this caused. It's like I could feel it shredding through the nerves in my eye. ... (14 replies)
