Stupid Me

I did the stupidest thing yesterday morning. To make a long story really short. I put an contact lens in straight out of the disinfectant so I 'burned' my cornea. I'll be find but, I've basically been living in the dark for the past 2 days. I'm pretty much ok now....the bright light still kind of hurts my eyes but, it's mostly cause I've been in the dark so long. I need to get use to it cause I really have to go to work tomorrow.

So I'm here not getting any stitching done and trying to read your blogs and comment when I can.

Oh you poor girl!!! That's why I don't have lenses. This would happen to me on a daily basis, probably. I do hope your eyes will be in full working order very, very soon! {{{hugs}}}

Carla said...

o_O poor girl...does it hurt?? Hope you recover fast ((hugs))

KaLu said...

*ouch* hope your heals soon , if it makes you feel better...
I made myself some on those instant soups with raspeberry flavored water....mmm yeah *yuks*!!!

Dawn said...

Ouch!! Hope it gets better soon.

Ouch. Hope you feel better soon. Don't feel too silly though. An Aussie football player turned boxer (what a combination) cleaned his contact lense with his tongue, and gave himself an bacterial infection in one eye which left him partly blind.

Oh, Poor you! This is extremely painful, I know it!... You'll have to be extremely cautious when you start wearing your lenses again -and may be have to change the cleaning products for sudden intolerance. I hope not though. Did you see a Doctor?
I just hope you recover fast and fine.
Take care, Jenn,
Lili

Ouch! Just thinking about it makes my eye burn. I hit my eye with a car door one time and that hurt for a long time. I was so glad I didn't have my glasses on or I'd have had broken glass in my eye. Then again, maybe it would not have happened if I had my glasses on. Hope your eye heals very soon.

Mindi said...

Ouch! I've never done something quite that bad, but I have put my lenses in before the solution has fully neutralized. OMG, it burns so bad! Hope you get better soon.

Ouch, that would be so painful. I have contacts too, and need to remember to rinse mine first with the sensitive eye stuff or it burns. I hope it's totally better soon and doesn't cause to much discomfort for you tomorrow.

Scotland is so pretty. I had looked for a picture earlier but figured I just must be searching wrong as couldn't find it. It will be striking when done.
