zoomed to the optomitrist (who is the nicest doc ever...).
He took a look and booked an emerg appoint with an opthomologist.
Off I go to see that guy.
(and because optomitrist dude wrote it up official like, he doesn't have to charge me and arm and a leg... it can just go on our lovely canadian medical plan).
Optho guy takes another look... puts dye in my eye to see better... and tells me I have a friggen hole in my eye.
Seems a bit of dry skin on my finger literally punctured my eyeball (white part) through the second layer (choroid?) when I absently tried to push away an eyelash that got in the edge of my eye. Please pass the Aveeno.
So he pronounced me "alive" and that it will get better in a couple of weeks but I gotta a) take these drops and b) come back next week to check progress.
You simply cannot image how seriously I want to rub my eye right now... rub rub rub rub rub rub rub.... !!!!!!! gah!
