When I went to see the optometrist a few weeks ago, he mentioned that my right contact lens had a tiny crack in it and he ordered me a new lens. I forgot all about it, since my contact seemed fine to me. For the last few days, my eyes have been bothering me so much. I have had to rush home after work and take my contacts out and rest my eyes.
My eyes have been watery and itchy. I could not stand to be in any bright light at all. My eyes have felt terrible. I wondered if I had a cold or allergies. I couldn’t imagine what was causing my eyes to burn so badly. Finally, yesterday, I remembered that I had a fresh contact lens waiting for my at my eye doctor’s office. Right after work yesterday, John took me to the office and I picked up my contact. I could not wait until we got home and took my contact out right in the car. The relief was immediate. When we arrived at home, I put in my new contact.
I am so silly. I looked at my old contact lens and there is a big crack right down the middle of it. I can’t believe I suffered with that for several days before I realized what the problem was.
I was able to work all day today with no pain in my eye. It was wonderful. Of course, I still can’t see properly, but at least my eyes will be comfortable for the next few days until my surgery on April 11. What a relief and what an easy fix.
