My left eye has been turning into a real monster lately. Every other week or so, it decides to swell up, water, and look spooky. No, I haven't been wearing a contact lens in that eye. Last weekend at the conference in Virginia, it felt like I had an eyeful of ground glass. It turned blood red and hurt like all git-out.
I've been to the eye doctor every day this week - and yes, I'm scheduled again tomorrow. The good news is that there is no ground glass in my eye (coulda fooled me). The bad news is that I have 3 abrasions on my cornea, and we can't figure out why. I've been on two different eye-drop therapies this week. At present, I'm putting antibiotic drops in every hour (earlier, it was every 15 minutes). Seems they can't figure out if it's just surface abrasions or something viral.
Anyway, if things aren't better by tomorrow morning, they're sending me to a corneal specialist. And tomorrow's Friday the 13th. I'm moaning already.
