  • Well it doesnt it. And now everything is foggy unless there is no light then I can see fine. But if I go outside its like there is fog outside. When I look at the computer screen its very blurry

  • I called the optometrist and they said that they could help me more than the doctor and that this is serious business. I hope its nothing serious!!

  • It sounds like pinkeye to me, You will need to see a DR for medication, it is highly contagioius. If you can get past the kinda grossness of it, breastmilk works the best to heal it. I did it, and it was gone completely in less than 24 hours.
