I’m in shock.
So for the past month or thereabouts my right eye has been inflamed and light sensitive and not responding to medication from 3 eye clinics so far.
The pain got unbearable over the weekend and after asking around I got a recommendation for another eye doctor.
I called on Saturday and he informed me he won’t be on seat till Monday (today) but recommended an eye drop for the pain which I immediately went to get and for the first time in weeks,I slept peacefully.
This morning I took the eye drop again and drove straight to the clinic.
Registered, went through a couple of tests and before I knew it, had a nurse next to me with a syringe and some solution (steroid I was told). I asked her what it was for and she said it’s for my eye.
I hardly get sick, I can count how many times I’ve been in a clinic on one hand so if anybody had told me I could get a syringe in my eye I’d have laughed it off but here I was.
I guess nothing would be as bad as the pain I’ve been going through for weeks so I calmly sat, watched them fill the syringe, watched it come to my eye and empty its contents inside (eye felt heavy for a bit).
I didnt know I would be injected so I drove down and had to drive back to my office (about 40 minutes) with this funky eye patch 😀 .
I’ve been at work all day though and I feel a lot better than I’ve been in a while so apparently it was all good.
