Your history shows that you are suffering from multiple problems. Unfortunately no one will be in a position to advice you unless we see you clinically.
All I can say is your condition may still involve multiple visits and intervention till you get significant relief

hi toni-ann priest ,
yes due to your avoidance of regular laser sittings it has resulted in some serious infection further leading to photophobia,in this condition its better to have resected surgery under supervision of opthalmic surgeon ,but it will definately take much time before your vision becomes absolutely normal..

get well soon !!
