Dr. Eugene Smith did my lasik six months ago. Before that, I had 20-400 vision which was corrected by contact lenses to 20-15. Dr, Patel, the salesperson doctor there, said he would make my eyesight as good as it was before lasik while I was wearing contacts. After the surgery I had glare and mentioned that to Dr, Patel at the follow up check- up visit. She downplayed it and said I have 20-15 vision despite not being able to read the bottom line of the eye chart without squinting and guessing several times. I went to m6 regular eye doctor who said I had a new astigmatism caused by lasik. I”m also undercorrected which increases the glare. I now must wear contacts to see almost as well as I did before when I wore contacts. Dr. Patel gave me a sales line and I fell for it. Do not fall for their dishonesty. Kept me waiting four hours on the cattle call surgery day, then had me sign an additional waiver that had been handwritten, last minute. Made a big deal about being able to take anti anxiety prescription before surgery, then last minute would not allow it saying it would be like operating on a drunk person. So I went in unseadated. Then they insisted it was a success despite my eyes now being more sensitive to sunlight. My regular eye doctor said further surgery carries risk of over correction which would make it very difficult to correct with contacts. So many things are wrong with how they operate. Rush patients to get it done then keep them waiting, then have them sign form last minute after lying about being able to take Valium. The biggest letdown is I have worse vision than promised. And Dr. Patel told me I may be able to get a refun. I contacted the department per Dr. Patel”s instruction, for a refund, and got no reply. Oh and I asked twice, in writing, these past six months, on the lasikplus official form, for my medical records to be sent to my eye doctor. Still have not gotten them.
