In a previous post, I wrote about how my left eye looked like it had exploded with blood. I had my follow-up appointment with the optometrist today. My eye has been slowly looking and getting better. It still looks a bit bloodshot but it’s certainly not the dark, red splotches of blood that were in my eye just a week ago.
When I was at the eye clinic today, I told the doctor the day after I saw him, I woke up to a bunch of dried and crusted blood in the corner my eye. The blood “blister” on the surface of my eye had burst, which made it feel better actually. I get the feeling that while my condition isn’t serious as he said, he hasn’t seen anything like this in a long time, just based on his reaction to blister breaking.
He checked my eyes again today and he gave me the all clear. He also printed out a prescription for eye glasses. As I mentioned before, my left eye isn’t great at reading things at a distance compared to my right. Based on his testing, he thinks it’s not critical that I get glasses at this point, as my right eye is good enough to compensate. It’s good to know that I have the prescription with me though, as I can now decide to get glasses whenever I want.
