Ophthalmologist : Input is needed, you want to see an ophthalmologist, not an optometrist, for evaluation, ask your doctor for referral. Checking the back of your eyes as well measuring eyes' pressure is important, all can still be normal, but need to be checked given the symptoms, best wishes

Is it safe to have lasik eye surgery while pregnant?

No: Lasik is "safe" from the perspective of risks of harm to the mother or fetus but, "will the procedure be effective"? Pregnancy is associated with visual accuity changes related to fluid retention and corneal edema. Elective vision correction surgery is best done in a baseline non-pregnant condition to achieve long term good results. More than "what meets the eye" must be considered here.

Maybe: It is technically safe to have lasik during pregnancy, however I do not recommend it as a general rule. Many changes happen during pregnancy and occasionally your prescription can change. This would give you a suboptimal result. Also, consider that prk(a procedure similar to lasik) often uses Mitomycin c which is known to cause birth defects. This should be completely avoided. Just wait 9 months.

See an eye doctor: Swelling and pain around the eye may be caused by an infection. If left untreated, it can potentially get into the eye socket and even the brain. Your aunt should be evaluated by an eye doctor immediately.
