OK, I have another thread on corneal abrasions on this forum. If you would like the full story, in detail, please check it out.
For this thread, I will summarize the history of my problem.
19 days ago, I had Intralase Wavefront Bladeless Custom LASIK. The procedure, after all, was a success.........not really
I went in today, for an early appointment with my doc. He didn't originally schedule the next appointment until three weeks out. I had a one week appointment and then the three week appointment was scheduled.
I had a corneal abrasion during my procedure and have been healing from that for the past 19 days. It healed perfectly and everything looks great today. There is just one problem. My left eye is still blurry and my right eye is perfect.
So, I have been wondering what is going on. I go in to see my doc today and right off the bat, he is short with me and aggressive. I knew this wasn't going to be an easy appointment.
We go through the motions and I start asking questions right off the bat. I ask if I have another tear, a wrinkle, epithelial buildup under my flap, debris under my flap, and so on. He tells me to notice how quiet he is and that he won't give me an answer until the exam is over.
Really? You can't answer questions as we go? Anyway, the end of the exam comes around and we have a verdict. Here it is:
My left eye, the problem eye, has healed perfectly. Yep, perfectly. WHAT? I then ask, "Then why is my left eye so much worse off than my right eye?"
He proceeds to tell me, "I commonly under-correct one eye to aid in nearsightedness later on in life." OH MY GOD! He did this on purpose! WHAT?
So, the doc is telling me that I paid almost $4000 for him to under-correct my left eye? NO SIR, I DIDN'T PAY FOR THAT!!!
I can't believe this. This is a nightmare. He then tells me that we will let it go for another two months and then re-evaluate. He told me that my eyes should even out.
This is crazy! I don't really know what to do here. I know I need to wait another two months just to see if things do even out, but what then if they don't! Should I seek legal action? This guy did it on purpose and it wasn't a mistake!
PLEASE RESPOND WITH ANY TIPS/ADVICE YOU CAN GIVE ME!!!!!
I need help.
