Cyclops – Part II

So I went to my doctor who sent me off to an eye specialist to look deelply into my eye to make sure nothing else was left in there.

The eye doctor looked, dilated my left eye, and looked some more. There is absolutely nothing left in there. What I’m feeling is the part of my eye that actualy got minorly scratched. But it is nothing serious. The eye will heal in a few days.

(Note: The doctor turns out to be a fellow Trojan! Not too much awkward silence while waiting for my eye to dilate there as we jabbered about football and campus life.)

So I left the doctor’s office, stopped by at home to put my contact lenses on and went back to work. The doctor did tell me that things are going to be blurry for the rest of the day because of the dilated pupil. I didn’t think it could be that bad.

And it was bad.

I couldn’t look at a computer screen at work. The light difference in the dilated eye and the normal eye gives me a headache, and I can’t see a damn thing on the screen. And it was getting worse by the minute. I ended up wearing sunglasses inside the whole 3 hours I was there to finish the mailer. I was useless in front of a computer so I asked to go home. I was back at the house at 3 p.m.

A drive down less than a mile was not too hard, but I wouldn’t do it again. Brandon was also home early from work drove me around to run errands that afternoon.

Watching TV wasn’t so bad. Reading was difficult.

And man, I wish I could’ve taken the picture of my pupil. I was HUUUUGE! And freaky. I looked like I had the all-black alien eye contact lense on!

Actually, my pupil is still dilated a little bit. The screen right now is still a little blurry, but nothing painful. Hopefully I’ll return to normal by the end of the day.

Oy.

*Pupil update* It’s Sunday 1:45 p.m. I finally am able to look at the computer screen and read my book without the blur. It’s not completely back to normal, but damn close. My pupil has been dilated for just about 48 hours. That’s some potent potion my doctor used.
