Bride reveals reasons why she went to her wedding blind for hours

She confided her concerns to the pharmacist, was given an eye drop and instructed to administer it before bedtime as advised.

Tragically, the bride woke up the next morning to find herself in complete darkness, unable to see anything.

In her words;

“How I lost my sight 24 hours before my wedding and got married partially blind. 36 hours before my wedding I went to the pharmacy to get eye drops because my eyes were a bit red from the stress of preparation. I explained why I needed the eye drop and the pharmacist prescribed me an eye drop. I was instructed to use this at night before bed, which I did.

“The next day I woke up blind. Like I couldn’t see it. My pupils were diluted. My eyes started to water because the beam of light was too much for my eyes to comprehend. My vision was completely blurred. I could only see very blurry shapes, but nothing more. I was completely blind just 24 hours before my wedding.

“I was taken back to the pharmacy where I bought the eye drop and the pharmacist who prescribed the eye drop for me was not on duty. Due to the seriousness of the situation, she was called to come to the pharmacy as quickly as possible. The other pharmacist did not understand why I was given such an eye drop.

“The eye drop was most often used during eye surgery or by an ophthalmologist to purposely dilate the pupils to fully examine the health of the optic nerve and retina. To think that I was given such an extreme eye drop was beyond anyone’s comprehension. When the pharmacist came, she was scared. Seeing how serious the situation was, they booked me for an immediate optometrist appointment.

“When we went to the optometrist, as soon as he examined my eyes, he told me that it would be a while before I could see fully again. There’s no way I could recover my vision in 24 hours, so I may have to go ahead with my wedding in that condition. I cried so much. The devil tried, but he failed.”
