Now your family believes that he suffered a rare but serious condition, Known as neuralgia in the cornea, which can cause damage to the nerves in the eye and cause unbearable pain.
"If he had been aware (of his condition) … he would definitely not have continued surgery," said his brother Kevin Fitzpatrick.
Paul's fall is the first known suicide of laser eye surgery in Canada, according to CTV.
During the past month, Starr said he had met "hard times" since he had undergone eye surgery with the Lasik SMILE procedure. Although the procedure to which it was granted was approved, it is made by doctors from all over the country.
It is not clear where Starr went to his procedure in Detroit. What is known is that she worked in October and that she took four weeks of rest and returned to work for a day in November, but it was a big fight for her and the next day she was at home.
of if 600.000 USA to is subject to Surgíto ocular with ltobe, or LASIK, only around of 1% experience complications, but for those who to the they do, the problem can be: péloss of the visiorn, problem of visiorn, pain or burning, view of haloes and visiorn múltiple, toughún the administrationorn of drugs and food of the USA (FDA, of their acronym in Englishés).
in 2017, the FDA realizor one test Clínico for assess the satisfactionorn of patient afterés of LASIK. around of the half of the patients in the test developed distorted view as they had never experienced before surgery, although their views were technically "improved".
The United States Refraction Operations Council says that LASIK has never been the "main cause" of any postoperative blindness. Although the families claimed that their loved ones had lost their jobs and even had to commit suicide because of the complications they had developed after LASIK.
LASIK also requires the surgeon to cut a "tab" in the front of the cornea and bend it backwards, which increases the risk of infection and if the tab is not replaced properly, this can cause blurred or double vision. .
It is assumed that the new SMILE procedure (removal of small incision lenses) minimizes these risks as it requires a much smaller incision in the cornea.
Approved by the FDA 2016, SMILE appears to have a lower risk of dry eyes after surgery. However, about 2.5 percent of patients experienced less deterioration of these corrections after one year.
