Seizure/Lasik link?

I have a friend who has been having unexplained seizures for 5+ years and has had great resources and doctor care but no answers. One idea that hasn't been explored yet is whether or not there may be a link between these seizures and lasik. Have you had anyone else with that possible connection?

I had my first unexplained seizure about 2 years after I had my lasik surgery.  I also had a second 13 months after that.  I have had the thought that there may be some connection as well because I am a healthy, 43 yoa, female.  I don't understand how I could have a seizure unexplained... all the testing shows nothing.  So, now I'm on meds for the rest of my life.

Have you proposed that possibility to your doctor to see if he/she has heard or seen any other such cases?

Sue...I had LASIK in October 2003 and began having seizures October 2005. All tests show no scar tissue, so seizures are unexplain although I have had a fair share of head injuries. Scar tissue should show up though. Now on meds till I die...and they aren't completely controlled.
