Hi, I'm wondering if anyone knows a good post Lasik doctor in Madrid. I'm currently studying here and suffering complications but being in a different country has made everything hard for me.
I'm sorry, J.Figue, but VSRN does not have anyone in Spain that we could refer you to. What sort of complications are you experiencing?
I’ve been getting a real bad pain in the corner of my eyes, especially the right one. Plus floaters on the right eye and I’m not sure if they relate. The pain is worst in the mornings and for some reason it gets intense when I open my eyes first thing in the morning. I was diagnosed with blepharitis and have been getting the intense pulsing lights treatment.
The floaters are not related. Whoever is treating you for the blepharitis should be offering you some additional methods of treatment in conjunction with the pulsing light therapy. Without actual clinical records it is impossible to know your condition but if your pain is worst when first opening your eyes in the morning I would suspect a corneal surface problem.
Well I made an appointment with cornea expert on Thursday, let's see what he'll say. The Dr. that is treating me for blepharitis did not offer any other method of treatment, he said I'm a level 2 (or something like that) and I'll be doing 3 treatments only. Plus I'm going to check out some wavefront glasses that came out last month here in Madrid and a GP lenses (searching for a good fitter) since I also have astigmatism... If the wavefront glasses work I'm going to do a post about those.
Hello J.Figue, I'm also post PRK patient from Madrid, I would be very grateful if you shared your experience with wavefront glasses, best of lucks.
Also, you may be interested in contacting Dr. Edward Boshnick's, it seems that he is one of the best doctors in the treatment of problems after refractive surgery, especially in rigid lenses, he may be able to recommend someone in Madrid or Europe.
On the other hand, there is a Spanish association affected by refractive surgery interventions, their facebook page is this, there is a lot of information and affected patients there. I hope you find it helpful, kind regards.
Well sorry for the late reply but finals have me crazy. Sandman thanks for the info, I went on the FB site but I had a bad experience there. It’s not a “mature” controlled space like this website and people started private messaging me awful things and I experienced really bad depression for the first time in my life. On the other hand I got recommended a doctor that will fit me with contacts. Yet it’s weird because this doctor doesn’t perform the surgery, yet really defends it. I’ve learned a lot of things in the past weeks but I don’t want to make this post long… Sandman, I haven’t yet tried the glasses because I want to wait till it’s been mote than a year after the surgery. If you want we can get in contact and share info to one another. Oh and good good news I want to share, my dry eye symptom has drastically improved!! I went down to 2 drops a day (if I don’t use the computer)
