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.
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.
I had laser eye surgery in October 2006 and took my first seizure two weeks later. I was 29 at the time and no history of epilepsy in family. I have taken further seizures since, severe grand mals, about once a year. I havent been able to drive and will be on medication forever. They are not controlled. My brain scan was clear. I cant help thinking that the eye surgery triggered or even caused my seizures. I hope there will be research into this connection however i doubt the industry will endorse this as it would lead to possible litigation and destroy industry completely. Happy to have found this forum to express my concerns.
