I brought my son to get contacts, so as long as I was there I asked. He said it's not VERY common, but it certainly can happen, and he has seen the RX's go either better or worse.

So I'm not getting an eye exam until after my surgery. Don't want to waste the $$ now if there is a chance my eyes could change.

Glad you clarified it's NOT very common; what a relief that must be for you.

Hopefully you'll crosslink the other thread to this for people who were following the original thread. I can if you'd like - or maybe you'll post this there?

Never prudent to get people all worried/worked up without basis and then abandon your own hanging thread for a new one on the same topic ...

Pam

Thanks, Debbe, for the info. That was one of the things on my to do list before surgery. If the RX can change, it makes sense to wait. I had no idea, so I appreciate it.
