So today I went to the eye doctor for a full check up. My eyes did indeed change and got a little worse. I really cannot see … like it’s fuzzy etc. and I want to see my wedding crisp and clear …
So I can actually get the surgery at the end of this month … or I could wait until after the wedding. What do you think?

Is this for cataracts? Sorry if I missed the backstory! If the doc thinks you can be back to seeing clearly by the wedding then I’d go for it! 🙂 GL! We’re thinking of you!

duh, you mean get your vision fixed, like laser so you don’t have to get contacts? just get an eval and see what they suggest!

Hi I had Lasik last year.. You will be totally fine by October. I had one day of pain and that was right after the surgery. It was like I had sand in my eye. The next day I was just light sensitive. I wore sunglasses indoors for a few days. During the surgery, the capillaries in one eye burst so I had a bloody eye- but it goes away in about 2 weeks.
The rules are no swimming pools, ocean, jacuzzis for 3 weeks and that’s it! You can do anything and after 3 weeks, it’s like you never had surgery but have perfect vision.

If you’re doing LASIK, you’ll be fine. I did PRK last year, though, and that takes a bit more time to heal (and you can’t rub your eyes for 4 whole months!). PRK works more slowly, but is a better option in a lot of cases. If your doctor recommends it instead of LASIK, get it in ASAP.

I have decided to wait until after the honeymoon … and we go away for xmas + new years … so after NYE vacation I’ll come back and do it.
I guess I cannot fly after having it? Plus I don’t want any complications and I got way too nervous about what I still need to accomplish for my wedding.

Any other bees have experience with Lasik? I’ve considered it but stilll a little hestitant. I’m also curious to know how much you need to pay out of pocket.

I would have loved to have had Lasik, but I’m not a candidate. I even saw the doc who did Tiger Woods eyes. Darn, I hate snorkeling in contacts.

I actually need cataract sugery, but am waiting until after the wedding. It’s just too much to do beforehand and I can’t take the stress of being out of commission for a few weeks.

I had Lasik last year for my 30th bday present to myself. I actually wasn’t planning on doing it at all but my Dad and Step-mom were doing a two for one deal together and my Step-mom ended-up not being able to do the surgery. She wasn’t a candidate. So my Dad did his and loved it so he convinced me to take her place.
I’m so glad I did the surgery. I can see better then I did with contacts. I see a 20/15 now! I had zero problems with the left eye. No pain nothing. My right eye had a stingy pain like I got soap in my eyes. But that lasted only for 2 days. I could see instantly after the surgey. But they recommend you wait a full day to try to really see.
We went to Italy for vacation soon after and it was so nice to not have to worry with contacts or prescription sunglasses!
I donated my prescription glasses after the surgery which always makes you feel good knowing you’re helping others!
