Ow, my eye! | 10/23/07
Ok, I'm not sure what's going on with my left eye but it's something. Ever since I got back from my marathon trip from Memphis I haven't been able to wear my left contact without a problem. Once I got back I put my glasses on because I had my contacts in for a two days straight since I had none of my stuff with me in Memphis and my eyes were dry and tired. On Saturday I put my left contact in before getting some coffee and everything was cloudy. I got home and assumed the contact was dirty but lo and behold even when I took it out everything was all...fuzzy. It's like when you get some crap and everything's kind of hazy for a second until you blink it away...except it couldn't be blinked away. I could still see but everything looked like I was looking through really dirty glasses. I went back to bed for a few hours before Tim and Chris came over and when I woke up it was back to normal. I put my contacts back in to give it another shot but after about five minutes it was worse than ever. Once I put my glasses back on it slowly got better over the next six-eight hours. I decided I'd wear my glasses the next couple days.
I wore my glasses from Sunday until Tuesday night when I was supposed to go meet Ricky & Co. at Cabo's for AJ's birthday. Since I'm so vain, and pretty sure that song was about me, I put my contacts in. Viola! No haze at all. I got in the car and started driving. Since it was so dark out I didn't really notice it had again set in until I got to Cabo's and upon seeing it I went straight home to get my contacts out. I waited about an hour before I just went to bed since the bright white light of my computer monitor was driving me nuts.
This morning it's back to normal and I'm again wearing my glasses. With my glasses on, it's totally normal. Once my insurance starts (a month) I'm heading to the optometrist though because honestly it's kind of freaking me out.
