    Free lasik for Quads

    The following was forwarded to me, I haven't looked into it myself...


    Focus on Independence is a program in which eye surgeons provide LASIK or vision correction surgery at no charge to quadriplegics.

    I had it done about 3 yrs ago. I am so glad I don't have to wear glasses anymore. I do have to wear reading glasses sometimes but not often. It cost me 2500$. A word of advice........I had BIG time trouble with dry eyes because I was on oxybutine or Detrol which made my eyes dry. I had to go back and see the DR the next day because when I blinked it made my lens or retina what ever they cut move so he put 2 big contact lens in for a few days. They have better ways of doing it since 3 yrs so it might be better. Just though I would share this so you might consider telling the DR in case you have dry eyes. I had the Aug so I don't take the Detrol anymore and don't have dry eyes. But what a great thing to get done. Glasses is a pain in the ars. At night I use to have to put them on take them off to cath.

    I sent a request for info on whomever does it in the Baltimore area, so I'll have the name if/when I decide I want the surgery. It's nice of those docs to provide it.
