Stick a needle in my eye
I saw an opthamologist this morning to take a look at my left eye. My lid is inexplicably swollen and staring at a monitor has been painful. It looks as if I were secretly punched. This is part of the reason I haven't been updating the site for the last week or so. The last time this happened about 4 years ago they ended up sticking a needle in my eyelid. It hurt so I wasn't looking forward to the appointment today. It turns out I just need to rest my eye (funny that I'm wearing a patch the weekend the Raiders are in the Superbowl) and use some ointment. The answer in medicine is almost always ointment. I'll be back soon, unless my eye falls out or I need to take it back to the shop and leave it for a tune-up.
