Breastfeeding

Q: I am a F, 45 yrs and have worn glasses since childhood. Occasionally wear semi perm hard lens about 1-2x months. My last prescription reads: R 7.50-0.75 x 165 L-5.50-0.50×015 PD62.I am breastfeeding now and have been for past 6 yrs, even thru pregnancies. What type of correction is best for me? How long would I have to stop wearing contacts and breastfeeding before I am eligible for surgery? What determines this? Thank you.

A: We will need to see what we are working with. I would like to review previous exam records and take some pictures and measurements. Can you stop by?
