I woke up this morning with the feeling like my eyelashes were stuck together so I couldn’t see quite right out of my left eye – only they weren’t stuck together at all. My eye was bloodshot, and it hurt. Things seemed gray in the far edge of my vision. If I touched my eye, the gray got worse. I resisted the urge to rub my eye and called the opthamologist. I used to work for him years ago, and I learned back then – you never mess with your eyes.
I was hoping it was just a surface area issue, and I wouldn’t have to be dilated. No such luck. It turns out nothing is wrong, but now I can’t see. I have giant black pupils with little blue rims around them. I hate having my eyes dilated.
Hopefully by tonight I will be able to see again. For now, I’m hanging out in the dark with my sunglasses on. Everything is so bright!
