I woke up this morn at 6am with my eyes burning. So I took off my contacts, and flushed my eyes... and it continued to get worse. According to the opthamalagist, I have some sort of infection in my right eye, hence the redness. The pain is because I have an abraison on my cornea - apparently, when I removed my contacts, the contact stuck to my eye and pulled off a bit of skin when I took it out!! So now I'm super-light sensitive (riding in the car to the doctor's made me practically blind cuz I was tearing up so much), my eye hurts like heck, and I tear up regularly every 15 minutes or so, forcing me to stop whatever I'm doing, press a wet cloth to my eyes, and just wait until the irritation subsides. Oh, and the drops the doctor gave me sting going in. wheeeeeee! this stinks.
