I just got back from the doctor appointment – I have a moderate abrasion on my left eye, and while it’s not deep it is wide enough to impair my vision if it doesn’t get corrected. They did all kinds of tests, including dilating my eye. They gave me two prescriptions – one for drops, another for a gel. They also gave me a low prescription contact lens to go over the scratch so that blinking doesn’t hurt so much.
The bad thing? No computer, no books, no tv. And now that I’m back at my computer I can see why – because of the contact lens, my vision is not clear, and the one dilated eye doesn’t help. Everything on the computer screen is a blur – which means MAJOR headache were I to sit here the rest of the day typing up numbers and letters for my boss’ document.
So the doc gave me a note requesting I be sent home, and I have an appointment to go back to the doctor tomorrow at 9:15 a.m. to see how my eye has improved. If it has improved enough I can work again, watch tv again, read again and work on the computer again. If it hasn’t improved much, I’m sent back home for another day of nothing.
So, with that – I’m out, and heading home.
