Hi, my wife had both eyes done last year in January and February. She had the following laser "clean-up" it was called because of cloudy vision. She went through all drops and directions for compresses and was told by the doctor "I don't see any reason for it other than maybe dry eye". Then was sent to another clinic. There she was given more drops for dry eye, and then was scheduled for scraping and polishing of her cornea because she was told that the dry eye has created a pitted surface that he could fix. Which was done early this year in January. Afterward, following the surface proceedure and having many drops to take...an extended follow-up period followed due to "not yet healed". Then yesterday the doctor said there is nothing else he can do surgically and he doesn't think it is worth doing anything to the other eye"...bye bye. It felt like being sent out the door of a hospital after being told you have amnesia. My heart just sank for my wife as I know how troubling and disappointing this whole experience has been when she expected no trouble...only success. Now we do not know what to do or where to go. We would go to the best eye clinic in the country...if we knew where that is. Please do not reply "Dever's Clinic in Portland OR"...been there, done that.
