I had recently had lasik out my eyes feel like they have been burnt, as if I have been staring at a bright welding rod all day. I have pain when I sleep as well but its the worst when I am trying to read or working on the computer. Eyes don'y seem to want to work together. I'm worried that I will have these problems for the rest of my life, I now have problems walking down a hall with blurry vision, I did not have this before even without glasses. These things can go bad, done through private clinics that only have making money in mind and not always the patients best interest.

Why did I do it? Basically I did it because I was nieve enough to think that since these were medical professionals I was dealing with they would have my best interest in mind. I should have been ruled out as a candidate for surgery because my eyesight was already fairly good and the risk was to high as I really could'nt gain much by surgery.

Low Lighting and Night Vision Sucks after Lasik
I can not see properly indoors during the day, and i have bad vision indoors in the evenings due to significant loss of contrast sensitivity. I find it very difficult to drive at night due to significant starbursting and halos around all lighting sources. I can not enjoy many of the leisure activities that I used to, such as: movies, playing cards and going out to a dimly lit pub with friends. I never figured it could turn out this way, I feel like living at decent life from this point on will be very difficult.
The clinic that did my eyes here in Canada did not bother to tell me ahead of time that my large pupil size was a serious threat to my night vision. I feel like such an idiot for putting my trust in people that were not qualified enough to deserve it. Qualifications that I feel were lacking were both technical and honesty. The bottom line for these lasik clinics is the dollar.
