Bride wakes up blind on wedding eve

The next day, the bride identified as @explorraa on the TikTok app said she woke up blind with her pupils dilated.

At a point, her eyes began to tear up due to light rays and she was rushed back to the pharmacist who gave her the eye drop.

They however met another pharmacist on duty who expressed shock at the particular eye drop given to her.

According to the pharmacist, the eye drop was extreme and only used by an ophthalmologist to purposely dilate the pupils before examining the health of the optive nerve and retina.

Seeing how sensitive her situation was, she was booked for an emergency appointment with an optometrist who sadly told her that the time frame between the sad incident and her wedding was too short to fully recover her sight.

She had no choice than to continue with her wedding in her condition while still undergoing medical attention to see perfectly again.

She narrated:

“How I lost my sight 24 hours to 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 preparation stress.

“I explained why I needed the eye drop and the pharmacist prescribed an eye drop to me I was instructed to use it at night before bedtime which I did.

“I woke up the next day blind. Like I couldn’t see. My pupils were diluted. My eyes started tearing as the light ray was too much for my eyes to comprehend.

“My vision was totally blur. I could only see very blur shapes but nothing more. I was completely blind only 24 hours to my wedding.

“I was taken back to the pharmacy where I bought the eye drop and the pharmacist that prescribed the eye drop to me was not on shift.

“Because of the intensity of the situation, she was called to come to the pharmacy asap. The other pharmacist couldn’t understand why I was given such eye drop.

“The eye drop was mostly used for eye surgery or by an ophthalmologist to purposely dilate the pupils to fully examine the health of the optive nerve and the retina.

“To think I was given such extreme eye drop was out of everyone’s understanding. When the pharmacist came she was scared. Seeing how seriously sensitive the situation was, they booked me for an immediate optometrist appointment.

“When we got to the optometrist, as soon as he examined my eyes he told me it would take a while for me to regain my sight fully and there’s no way I would get my sight restored in 24 hours so I might have to go on with my wedding in that condition. I cried so much. The devil tried but he failed.”

Social media users stormed the comments section on the TikTok app to share their thoughts about the video.
