An electrician killed himself after his corrective eye surgery allegedly left him with dry eyes and blurred vision.
Paul Dance, 62, didn't wear glasses and paid £ 6,990 to have new lenses surgically placed in his eyes in January.
But the surgery didn't seem to work and Mr. Dance complained of dry eyes and blurred vision.
He was found dead on July 4th at the Worcestershire Royal Hospital where he worked.
Mr. Dance left four suicide notes focusing on the fear of his apparently failed eye surgery.

His partner, more than 18 years old, Denise Phillips, a district nurse, said he was obsessed with his eyes and feared he could not do his job properly.
Mr. Dance said he saw halos after his operation that he couldn't tell apart from street lights.
Ms. Phillips told the BBC, “I hope we can make people aware of this. I just want people to be aware of the dangers so that Paul's life is not in vain. & # 39;
Activist Sasha Rodoy said it is more common than you think to have eye surgery.

She advocates further regulation in the industry.
A US television presenter killed herself only two years ago after struggling with the side effects of corrective eye surgery.
Fox weather presenter Jessica Starr, 35, a married mother of two, committed suicide less than nine weeks after having laser eye surgery.
Her family believes that complications from the surgery have driven her to suicide.
