"Trust No one...Not Even Your Eye Doctor"

--Washington Post

Victims get the word out: Billboards up in Knoxville, TN

Welcome! This site is dedicated to those whose lives have been damaged or destroyed by refractive surgery. When complications occur, your life splits in two. There is the person you were before LASIK, and the person you are now...the person whose dry eyes hurt all the time, the person who sees multiple images of everything, who can't drive at night, who can't fulfill his or her responsibilities as a parent, or his or her potential as a human being, the person who suffers from PTSD, depression, and various states of dread about the future. You realize that maybe human nature isn't fundamentally good, or at least that doctors aren't what you thought they were. Sometimes you cope pretty well, and sometimes you don't think you can go on.
