My girlfriend had laser...

My girlfriend had laser surgery Friday without her primary doctor who was not there.she has glaucoma and macular degeneration .being in 12 auto accidents not her fault her nervous system is very sensitive.now she cannot see anything?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you experienced any changes or blurriness in your vision? Eye pain? Are your eyes dry or bloodshot?

She feels like she has a eye film and her eyelids feel heavy.she cannot feel her glasses on.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is your eyelid swollen at all?

It is swollen from under her eye down to the end of her check.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I called the laser specialist and asked what her pressure was 22 mml/he which is not high enough to merit laser surgery.now she cannot see anything.what is the solution to this horrific situation?

What sort of laser surgery did she have?

Actually, it doesn't really matter....

If she has suddenly lost vision she need to get into see her ophthalmologist right now. Call the office and see if the oncall doctor can see her.

If this is not possible, go to the ER where they should be able to call in an ophthalmologist to come and evaluate her.

Bring all her meds and drops with you to the ER.

Does this make sense?

I am happy to be able to help you today. If you would be so kind, please help me get credit for my efforts in answering your questions and press the excellent feedback button for this encounter.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Dr dick I am so upset my girlfriend signed a consent form.it was a hustle.i am mad at myself and very upset because I did not step in and stop it. Now my girlfriend is suffering total vision loss.can this be reversed.

is she lights out, totally blind in both eyes?

If she is totally blind, even in one eye, why did the ophthalmologist say this happened?

Do you have a copy of her clinical notes I can review?
