My Medicine Bottles as I see them…
About two weeks ago I got an eye infection that progressed into the interior of my eye. My right eye is fine, but I get this over lapping image which gives me a worse headache than usual. The doctor gave me several medications in drop and ointment form to apply to my eye – a total of 9+ applications per day since they need to be spaced out. Each type gets a different count and timing per day. A complicated schedule.
The medications actually make the vision even blurrier. On one of the bottles it talked about causing the exact symptoms it cures. Hopefully it solves the underlying problem and then I’ll see well again once I stop taking the medications. At this point my eye feels much better after a week of the medication but I still see the world like the photo above.
What you would see…
Beware of the bottle on the left. It looks surprisingly like my eye drops but I wouldn’t want to put it in my eye. Upon realizing this potential point of pain I removed the superglue bottle from my office. No need for a nasty surprise.
Part of Why I See What I See…
My left eye, on the right side of the photo, is fully dilated from the medication. This is after over 12 hours since the last dilating drops. Being fully open makes it much harder to focus. This helps with my Mad Scientist look.
So you’re probably wondering how I got an infection. Well, I was vacuuming the floor of the initial cutting room after Ben had finished grinding and I got a butcher shop in my eye. Concrete dust blew upward into my face. I thought I had gotten it all cleaned out but apparently some remained which irritated my eye’s surface strongly. The inflamed eye turned into an infected eye. Probably if I had rinsed with the lubricating drops that would have helped. Wearing my swim goggles would have almost certainly prevented it but I didn’t have them on that time.
