i decided to post this bc it was pretty tramatic and maybe i can help others. im 30 years old and i am almost legally blind, all bc of one simple eye infection i never got checked out!
I was at work one day and i felt like something was in my eye, i kept rubbing and rubbing it, i went into the bathroom and i splashed water in it and i just kept trying to flush it but i could see nothing but i def felt something, i figured i would just blink it out! well time and time went by and it wasnt gettnig any better i just kept ignoring int, then finally one day my entire white area of my eye was deep red, and my eye lid was almost half shut. i looked high im not gonna lie! it was def noticeable. I finally called the eye dr, and I went in, he said he noticed alot of spots on my eyes which would cause dry eyes, i also told him i had a hard time seeing it was getting bad, my reigser at work was coming up wrong bc i coudlnt see anything to know how much money to give back or if i was even putting in the register right! i couldnt drive nothing! they put me on 5 different kids of medicaitons, NOTHING worked, i just kept going back it like 2 months for them to see that i developed this nasty eye infection ( i dont remember the name) and it caused me to get dry eye, i got more steroids for my eyes she says my vision will never be the same, i have all sorts of perminant damage!
i got glasses. finally. they are reading glasses but I can wear them when i need them! i only really need them to drive and to see on the computer, and some days i dont need them at all its weird! my eye lid is still not open all the way and i look horrible!
i never knew an simple infecton could do this to me! from now on i feel any thing wrong im going to the drs!
