I am currently serving in the U.S. Navy in CA. In Sept. 2011, I was hit by a plastic shovel causing a reoccurrent corneal abrasion. . A Navy Optometrist referred me to an ophthalmologist out in town. From there doctor did PRK surgery to correct the corneal abrasions. 1 day after the procedure I started losing sight, and developed some serious pain. The next morning I had lost complete eyesight. The doctor had me come in that night, to see another doctor. He said it was normal gave me vicodin and let me go home. It ended up being staff infection and took 3 weeks to pinpoint the infection. My vision is 20/200 in that eye due to a central scar from the infection. Pre-surgery was 20/20. I now need a corneal transplant.The initial PRK surgery was FEB. @ and it is now Sept.
