Yep, those suck!

My most recent "eye incident" was about six months ago.. I was in the shower washing my hair when I got a big ole glob of DOVE shampoo in my eyeball! Now, with DOVE generally being a gentle product, you'd think big deal. But Omgosh that freakin' hurt like bananas! I couldn't open my eye for a couple hours afterwards. DH had to literally pry my eyeball open to wash some water into it because I had it so tightly shut!

Glad you're on your way to recovery though :] Share your pix when you get them done!

I had the great fortune of scratching my cornea on vacation. My eye was bandaged and I couldn't move it...or I would risk more scratching and further damage. The bad thing is that when you move one eye or move your head, both eyes move natrually. You can't just keep 1 eye still. I had to lie down for about 2 days and had to try not to move my head or open my eyes. Did I mention I had a 1 year old at the time?

Know the pain....Wish you well.
