Scratched cornea seems to be healing finally. Was really bad Friday, not getting any better. I had been on the road all week - because this crap never seems to happen when I'm at home - and the doctor at the local clinic arranged for a visit to a local eye doctor once they took a look at the lack of healing progress.
Eye doctor, she was really cute - according to my one good eye. Fantastic legs in that mid-thigh skirt. When she told me it was a 13x15mm abrasion, I was a bit gobsmacked. Gave me a prescription for hourly antibiotics, just in case, and arranged an appointment with my eye doc back home. So I had to go home in the middle of the two-week trip. With those legs, she could have told me to stab myself in the eye with a fork and I would have paused only to ask, "Dinner fork or salad fork, my dear?"
Was dreading the 8-hour drive home because natural light was making it difficult to see. Early morning weather cooperated by giving me clouds, and I stopped at a drug store along the way to pick up an eye patch. Drivin' like a pirate, yar! Looked stupid but it made all the difference.
Anyway, appointment tomorrow, and I'm hoping it will be pretty much healed by then.
