Two words you never want to hear from your eye doctor: viral conjuntivitis.
Trust me on this.
Imagine your eyes are on fire, and, in order to put out the fire, you decide to pour a beach full of sand on them. Now they are hot and gritty. Hmm. It needs something else. How about rinsing it all off with alcohol and gasoline, so now they sting, too? Might as rub some itching powder around your eyes, and just light the whole mess on fire.
That’s what this week has been like. Not really fun.
Interestingly, it’s almost 2 years to the day that I had just about the same thing happen while I was in Tokyo. The drugs there worked a little faster. The medicine I got works, but not nearly fast enough for my liking.
To be fair, the burning and gritty sensation is going away, but they still randomly itch like hell.
Anyway, my eye trouble has kept me away from the computer. As they’re getting better, I’m able to do more work, but I have to take frequent breaks.
I have a cold mask that works wonders. I should have bought two, so I could keep one cold while I use another, but this is good enough.
