... Week days for follow-up checkup.
Will probably not be able to stare at computer for 14 h/day for a few days/week to prevent eye strain.
Should I:
-Keep going with the surgery?
-Wait until I can reasonably take some holidays (after first project) ? And take a week off to do it?

I am not sure how this will be perceived and I really don't want to strain my eyes post surgery to ensure optimal healing. Also the no flying for several weeks post surgery is perfect in current situation.
Starting in a few weeks so no clarity on staffing at the moment.

I would suggest contacting your recruiter so you get advice for your region and firm.

Are sick days available on day 1? What is early training schedule? Should you delay start by 2-4 weeks and finish Lasik first? Is lasik covered by their insurance and something you should delay to get covered?

Or do it faster like Right Now. If you can’t do that, wait until holidays.

No elective surgery with the lockdown unfortunately..

I promise you nobody will care and they will encourage you to prioritize your health. I had a friend who started and one month did an elective surgery and got three months paid leave. No negative consequences.

Talk to HR about taking short term disability. We have excellent benefits, use them

Why would you have to take two Fridays off? When I got Lasik I only took off the Friday of the procedure, then had two early morning follow-ups after that.

Surgeon strongly recommended one eye at a time in case healing/scarring was sub-optimal. So first eye as a test, then if there are issues adjusting before the second eye.
Will follow his reco since it means more trouble for him as well.

What does the doctor recommend post surgery for optimal healing? I’d ask him/her before a bunch of us lol

Maybe throw some half days in there. That way you can still be an accountable team member gettin on each day but with limited use. I feel that would be acceptable if you’ve been there a a month or two
