Until then, would it make sense if i used sun glasses with the right len adapted to my astigmatism? Or should i just leave it like this?


This much astigmatism is going to negatively affect your ability to see clearly. You will want to wear corrective lenses.

How very sad. I'm sure the clinic will arrange for another surgeon, but this is a dreadful unforeseen event.

Yes, Dr. [redacted] will replace him. But only in next year god knows when..
The other doctor told me i would only pay 50% for this surgery. Now im not sure about it.

Note: Doctor's name redacted.

I think you have very good cause to expect to pay nothing more than the actual out-of-pocket expense, such as the laser royalty. It's worth asking.
