Was scheduled today but surgeon rescheduled

Postby lkestler » Thu Mar 08, 2007 7:38 pm

I was going to have Lasik today and went in and they redid the testing on my eyes and my prescription had gotten better by 10%. The surgeon said this can occur if my contacts had not been out long enough the first time they did the test. So, they want to check my eyes twice more and then do the surgery in three weeks to make sure my cornea has stabalized. I am somewhat disappointed that I was not able to have it done today but I now have even more faith in my doctor that he does not want to take unneccessary risks and he wants to make sure everything is in place before doing the surgery. So, my next surgery date is March 29th which is also my 30th birthday.

Happy (early) birthday, and I absolutely agree that it looks like your surgeon is being careful with your eyes.
