Help? Lasik eye surgery has caused me pain, injury and trauma. Every day of my life that I consume. All day, all day, my eyes are extremely dry, sore throat and severe shoulder blade pain. I can use eye drops and costly that only provide a fraction of seconds of relief. It is painful to do my favorite activities, like reading. It is painful to do my job as I work on a computer. I have afraid to go swimming at the beach or snowboarding, because they can only further irritate the eyes. I can not go outside without sunglasses. I do not think I can go back to school because reading is so painful between in my shoulder blade. It is painful to sleep and pain of awakening. All day I live in total misery. I am only 24 and I'm sad because every day I realize my life has been ruined by this surgery. Today I saw someone who wears glasses and is completely consumed with envy. I wish I could wake up from this nightmare. I have little fear and hope. Do not want this to happen to others. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
Anyone can sue anyone for any reason. The real question is whether you can expect to succeed. If you recall, you were given an informed consent form to read before surgery and signed the form giving permission to the surgeon performing the procedure knowing that there was no guarantee of success. Because the symptoms of shoulder blade pain are realizing that they are well documented side effects post op does not sound like the surgeon did something that would qualify as malpractice. You will most likely not be successful. Sorry.
