I just got back from my follow-up eye appointment. This one went much faster than yesterday’s appointment, and I much preferred today’s student/doctor combination over yesterday’s.
My eye is better – no need for the contact lens, therefore no more blurry vision. I also don’t need to use the gel antibiotic anymore (there’s $10 down the drain – I only used it TWICE). He recommended I use the drops the rest of today and then twice tomorrow and twice Saturday use a thick gel version of Visine that he gave me for free. But he said the contact lens helped the eye heal more quickly than if I didn’t wear it, and it’s pretty much healed at this point. The extra drops today will just “seal the deal” (his words, not mine).
So I’m back at my desk, able to work, and sweating like a pig because it’s frickin’ hot and humid here in NYC today. Stupid summer pregnancy.
