I’ve been out of commission the last couple of days.  It seems I have a [corneal abrasion] on my left eye.

How’d that happen?

I had some problems on Monday night taking out my left contact lens.  It has always been a problem since I started wearing contacts again, but this time it was more difficult then previously.  I guess I got a little over anxious and scratched my cornea.  I knew it almost right away.

An hour later it felt worse.  By the next morning I knew something was seriously wrong.  So I made an appointment for the morning.  Farrah had to drive me because by that time the pain was unbearable.

The ophthalmologist who saw me was very nice and informative.  He determined it was a corneal abrasion and prescribed ointment and antibiotics.

This is how my eye looked after the visit:

One day two I looked a little worse then got a little better:

Day Two

I went back to work today, straining my right eye to read the screen.  I also had another doctor’s appointment today.  He said everything is healing back up, with a few places high on eye that aren’t filling in quiet yet.  I’m on a dose of antibiotics and ointment to heal.

We’ll see how things progress by next Tuesday’s follow up.
