If the surgery is implantation of intraocular lenses or corneal refractive surgery without any other issues such as retinal tears/detachments (which are more common in eyes with your degree of myopia), there is definitely no rush and you can wait while wearing glasses/contact lenses during the interim.

That depends on the shape and thickness of your cornea which would best be determined by the surgeon that you choose.  If you're unsure, you can always get multiple opinions since the consultation often is complimentary.
